Sometimes, happenings in life linger in my mind to the point where I need to write about them.
The lingering moment was a conversation I had with teachers about a week ago regarding an upcoming narrative writing unit. We were sharing thoughts around the concept of memoir, what one was and how students might take on the work, and the structures a memoir might take when writing one. One thing led to another as does naturally when in deep conversation and as we were surfing the net and our other resources, we came across this. A 6 word challenge. Now, I am not saying that this would be the work of our students, however we did take time to pause to consider the following for ourselves.
Challenge: To write your memoir in just six words. Six words.
Fast forward to today. Ok, now, on this day, the more I am researching this, the more I am realizing that this is not a new concept at all but one that I am revisiting. I do believe it is important to take a few minutes in life to take stock, to appreciate, to reflect, and to grow in knowledge of oneself as a person, so I redirect this challenge to you.
So, on this festive weekend, I am asking, ‘What are you thinking about? How has your life been?” Take on the challenge below as a fun way to reflect upon your own life, dreams, and aspirations.
Mine: Fashion first, goes her way, reflects.
