How Do You Remember It?

by ajanefountas

It’s Tuesday, so why not write a short piece of prose or poetry (with line breaks or in paragraph form). I mean, after all, Tuesday’s child is full of grace.

First, read “This Is How I Remember It” by Betsy Kemper.

Then, pick a scene from childhood that has always stood out to you. Something vivid. A run-in with a friend or family member. Your preschool teacher. Your first crush. Write in first-person. Play with voice by using very little punctuation. Let the story run on and into itself. But keep it all in the present tense, like this one. Write it like it is happening now.

And keep it short. And post it in the comments section, pretty please!
