Meditate on a positive childhood memory and then create what comes from that meditation. Try to focus on both feelings and imagery.
Take a moment and think about where you were on 9/11.
Even if you don’t want to remember the horror of that day, still think about where you were in life.
What were you doing?
Who were you with?
How did you feel?
Now run with it. Write a non-fiction or memoir piece about that day. Write a fiction piece using what you remember about yourself, taking the truth and spinning it. Write a poem about what you saw, heard, and/or felt.
