Writing Exercises – When I Was a Kid….

Okay, we have a more traditional writing exercise this week: complete the sentence below with a story.  Why?  Because I already told you, I’m busy trying to actually write for a living today.  (I have to do something; I just got turned down for a job I interviewed for last week.) 

Write three pages (or more) starting with the line:

You may replace the word “it” with something more specific, such as “…when the car accident happened.”  This does not have to be biographical; it can be fictional, but should be told from the first-person.
