Book of Me, Written by You, Prompt 30

Today is week 30 of what is going to be a 15 month project. Each Saturday, at around 12.30 am 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.

This week’s prompt is – Your First day of School

  • Do you remember the day?
    • The weather 
    • What you wore 
    • How you got there
    • Who took you to school
  • Where was the School
  • Any stories?
    • Friends
    • Teachers
  • How old were you?
  • Were you perhaps home schooled or taught in a different way to the usual traditional methods – such as were you in a remote area and lessons conducted using the phone etc
  • Do you have any other memories or thoughts of your first day of school?
    • Or perhaps ask a sibling, parent, child etc
Caution – do not spend lots of time on your junior school that will be in another prompt!…..

  1. Suzanne, I am truly sorry that perhaps this prompt is not a good one for you. If it is too much, you can shelf for another day (or perhaps never) if that is what is required. Remember, this journey is about sharing and writing what feels comfortable to you for you and your descendants.

  2. Oh boy! This prompt is an emotion-laden one for me. My first day of school was very traumatic and ruined parts of me for the rest of my life. Thank you for this writing project!
