Writing about a favorite thing, person, or place gives you short vignettes that you can add to your larger memoir. Perhaps the paragraph about your favorite house will fit in with your overall theme of moving and loss.
Practice writing about each favorite – even if it seems silly – the act of remembering and writing will keep your creative energy flowing. Try to write at least a full paragraph about each thing. Remember! Use your five senses!
Here are just a few favorites – I’m sure you can think of some of your own!
