Memories of Writing (Journal 1)
In a paragraph or two, describe, in as much detail as you can, your earliest memories of writing. Use these questions to jog your memories: How old were you? Where were you? What kind of technology did you use (cheerios, refrigerator magnets, crayons, keyboard, etc.). What kind of reaction did you get from those around you?
Now, in a follow-up paragraph, write about how your attitude toward writing has changed since that early memory. Have there been any important moments or experiences that have shaped your attitude toward writing (for good or for ill)? Who are you as a writer today? Is that different from the early writer you once were? How so?
