101 Blog Post Ideas for Writers: Number 67:00 PM
One of the reasons that I debated starting this website was because I wasn't sure what I would write about. I was too scared to post excerpts of my current WIP since it's still a rough draft and I didn't want to give anything away. As you can see though, I decided to build the website anyways!
Once I read a few of them, I realized that they all linked to Julie Jernigan's blog, Julie Writes. There, I saw her post, "101 Blog Post Ideas for Writers - Part 1." I hadn't heard of Julie or her work before, but I have to admit, she had a pretty great list of ideas! So, I decided to participate in the blog tag too!
6. Your first memory of writing
Sometimes, I wish that I had come to the realization that I wanted to be a writer earlier than I actually did! Had that been the case, I might have saved some of my writing from when I was a kid!
Nevertheless, my first memory of writing goes all the way back to kindergarten! I remember it quite clearly too!
It was the first of the two elementary schools that I would attend and my teacher's name was Mrs. Kuykendall. She had us sitting in group tables waiting for her instructions. I had a three-pronged folder in front of me. It was turned sideways and I'm pretty sure it was blue too. Inside, there were multiple sheets of off-white paper with the extra wide lines for children. You know, the one's with a top and bottom line and a dotted line in the middle! To be honest, I can't recall what I was writing about, but I've got a feeling that it might have had something to do with cats :)
BONUS FACT: Mrs. Kuykendall organized a green eggs and ham day for my class and we didn't just read the book, but we ate green eggs and ham too!
