Write about your childhood.
Because Anne Lamott told you to.
That should be a good enough reason.
And do it before you forget it!
Now I just need to write about the rest of it…
“There are so many things I want to tell my students in our last class, so many things I want to remind them of. Write about your childhoods, I tell them for the umpteenth time. Write about that time in your life when you were so intensely interested in the world, when your powers of observation were at their most acute, when you felt things so deeply. Exploring and understanding your childhood will give you the ability to empathize, and that understanding and empathy will teach you to write with intelligence and insight and compassion.”
–Anne Lamott, Bird By Bird
