Writing Challenge Day 10: Your Earliest Memory

Just joined us? Jump in where you are. Don't feel you have to catch up, or to go back and start at the beginning. Just work on today's assignment. For more information about the challenge, read this post.


Write about your earliest memory. What do you see? How old do you think you were? Was it an event or just a mental "snapshot?" Does it have any particular meaning to you now?


  • Don't like today's topic? Not everything in the challenge will fit your life or circumstances. Pick something else from the archive, this question list, or write more on something you wrote earlier.
  • Don't judge yourself. Don't edit. Just write. You will edit later. Now it's just about getting it down, for your eyes only.
  • If you want to keep going after the 15 minutes are up, go for it!
