Writing Exercise 1 – A Poem to Your Past Self
June 3, 2012 in Writing Exercise
So the first writing exercise is a bit late, but perfection takes time
As writers and readers, we often address others, and ourselves in the present tense. However, I’m sure all of us, at one point or another, have considered our past and how it has shaped who we are today.
Our first assignment is this: Write a poem to yourself in the past. Consider what you would tell yourself in the past if you had the chance, given all that you have experienced up to now. Everyone has dreams and aspirations, fears and imagined (or real) pitfalls. Use these and other aspects of your life to craft a piece that speaks to you then as well as now. Be sure to think creatively!
