Sunday Writing Essential (05/25/14, Memories)


Today we are going to explore the concept of memories and point of view. Now we all have memorable experiences, and we colour these recollections through our own unique point of view.

The goal to this challenge is to put yourself in another person’s shoes, and then tell a story of one of your experiences through his or her eyes.

Here’s an example of what I mean:

Suppose you remember and argument between yourself and a sales clerk. You would now take that memory, and write the story from the clerk’s point of view. Why did that person argue with you? Maybe the sales person had a bad day, or hated their job. Maybe something you said set them off. Use the story to explore their side of the argument.

Of course, you’ll choose, and write about, your own particular remembrance.


The Challenge:

Write a story or a poem in the form of one of your memories. The catch: you must write this memory from another person’s point of view.


The List of Things to Do:

  • Add this Challenge Statement to the post: Write a story or a poem in the form of one of your memories. The catch: you must write this memory from another person’s point of view.
  • Put (SunWE, 05/25/14, Memories) in your post title.
  • Be sure to tag your post with SunWE, Gather Writing Essential, and Memories
  • Then post it to Gather Writing Essential. You can also comment below with the link to your post to ensure I find it.

There is also a limit of three submissions from each member per day, which you can follow or ignore at your discretion.

Also, if you would like me to critique your response, feel free to request it at the end of your post, otherwise I will simply leave a comment.
