The Book of Me, Written by You, Prompt 1

Today is the launch of what is going to be a 15 month project. Each Saturday, at around 12.30am UK time I will release the prompt for that week’s Book of Me, Written by You.

If you are new here, welcome! The details, background flyer and Face Book link to the Book of Me can be found HERE

The prompt for week 1 is a recognized psychology test

  1. Ask yourself 20 times “Who are you?”
Each time you should give yourself a different answer, and if you can easily go beyond 20 then that is fine too. The last time I did this (December 2012) I came up with 26. This is the sort of prompt that you can re do at various stages of your life, perhaps after some changes or at the start of the New Year.

This prompt is about how YOU see YOU.

A little later I will stop by with my answers.

  1. It looks like I'm starting about a year late. So fun to have a form to follow and how neatly it is all organized. Look forward to reading other's Book of Me posts along the way. Thank you.


  2. I have been looking for something to write about…so even though I am late in the game….I am going to join in. I will do as many as I can till I catch up. 🙂 Thank you for this wonderful Idea!!!


  3. Sharn I am sorry for your loss. Of course you may jump in late – the Facebook group is worth joining; lots of support, encouragement & sharing (share what you feel comfortable with) if you are behind, no matter you can catch up – jump right in.


  4. Sharn White says:

    May I join late Julie? I'd like to try to catch up. My baby grand daughter passed away and I haven't been blogging. I'll have to work hard to keep up with all those fabulous posts. Starting today!

    This is different I think I'll try it!


  6. Jana, Manhy thanks for including the Book of Me in with your Fab finds. Much appreciated.


  7. Jana Last says:


    I want to let you know that your blog post is listed in today's Fab Finds post at

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  8. Count me in ! I will give it a whirl ………


  9. Sharon says:

    You really are full of great ideas.

    Well Done 🙂


  10. The responses really should be in your own spot – blog or journal as you might want to create a journal for future generations. Some have shared their responses via the Face Book page, other prompts might be more private & you not wish to share the answers.

  12. Are we posting our results in a special spot or linking them somewhere?


  13. Thanks Andrea. I hope you enjoy the series.


  14. I found out about this through Geneabloggers. What a great idea!


  15. I know,it is often not liked because people think about what others are putting down. It is a good one to repeat though as the responses change over time and situations.


  16. Kristin says:

    Oh no! I remember my oldest daughter had an assignment to do this once, not herself but to interview people to get their answers. My second daughter and I drove her crazy second guessing ourselves. Come to think of it, I guess on this prompt that would work fine.
