Write on Wednesday: Choose your own adventure!

Write On Wednesdays Exercise 17: This week, we are going with Karen’s idea for an open choice week. So take a look at the old writing exercises (you can find them listed in my sidebar: WoW Writing Exercises), find one you’d like to try (or retry!) and link it up to the linky below. Short and simple instructions this week. If time is an issue perhaps you would like to try one of the 5 minute stream of consciousness exercises.

This being just my second week participating in WoW, I was excited to be able to do an exercise from a previous week. I chose: Write On Wednesdays Exercise 3 – I remember: Write “I remember” at the top of your page. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Use “I remember” as your prompt and write down the first words that come into your head for 5 minutes. Stop when the buzzer rings!…

I remember when I would leave my house giving no thought to anyone but myself, when I filled my pantry with food only I wanted to eat. I remember when all my shoes were safe, my leashes for surfboards, and my leftover plastic bags for banana peels or watermelon rinds.

I remember when my couch was free of hair, my floor pristine and shiny, my pockets empty of crumbs.

I remember the day I learned to worry about the safety of my shoes, my couch growing a beard, or mystery spots on my floor. It was the same day I found complete, unconditional devotion in a wriggling, black and white package.

I remember the day I fell in love.
