Memoir Writing Prompt: This Day is for YOU!

I recently discovered the listing of all the national holidays. And today is meant just for you. Today is “National Write Your Story Day.” I love encouraging people to write down their stories for their children and those who come after. My father’s family has always been such a mystery for me. I know they […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What did You Learn from Your Grandparent?

I had planned to write on a different prompt today until I saw this picture my cousin posted on Facebook of him and his grandson. I have to sadly admit to the fact that I still have no grandchildren (another topic); however, I had grandparents and this picture captures the epitome of what I think […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Remembering the Healthy Diet of Old

When I was a student in Home Economics class in the 60s, I learned the pyramid of healthy eating. Growing up on a farm, I knew we had a somewhat balanced diet. We consumed lots of homemade bread, ate fruit from the orchard and vegetables fresh from the garden. We ate beef, ham/pork and chicken […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Which Teachers made an Impact on You?

I saw school as fun and exciting and couldn’t wait to get there every morning. Many special teachers crossed my path from elementary through high school. Mrs. Baynes, my seventh and eighth grade Latin and Ancient History teacher, intertwined the two subjects and made that entire historical time frame come alive—Julius Caesar, the Apian Way, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: When did your educational light bulb go off?

It happened in first grade for me. For some reason, I have never forgotten the exact happening and the person responsible. At Mrs. Olsen’s directions, my classmates dutifully took one paper and handed the rest to the child who sat behind them. At least, that’s what they were supposed to do. The girl who sat […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What childhood pets still bring fond memories for you?

Growing up on the farm in Pennsylvania led to our family adopting many stray dogs and cats over the years. It seemed that all strays who wandered on our property or were intentionally dropped off there quickly assumed our home to be their home. We just took it in stride. Mom never bought dog food, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What was your first paying job?

Babysitting was my first paying job at 25¢ an hour. At fifteen, I gave up my sister’s bridal shower for the opportunity to make a whopping $1.50. I babysat for a single mom, a nurse, with six kids for, yes, 25¢ an hour. She worked until 2:00 a.m. and I was expected to make dinner, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: How Many Bleaches have You Warmed?

When I was a child, sports didn’t have much of an impact in our home. Too busy with farm work for our parents to drive us back into town for practices or games. My husband introduced me to the world of sports—all kinds of sports—anything that involved a round or oval sphere of leather. Our […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: How did You Celebrate Presidents’ Day?

When I was a child in the 50s and 60s, we celebrated Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12th and George Washington’s birthday on February 22nd. Starting in first grade, we studied these two great leaders in depth and what they did for America. Both days were seen as holidays, but we still went to school. […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Did you lick any cows’ tongues in your childhood?

I did . . . once . . . maybe twice. I was a farm girl, why not? And Mom cooked cow tongue for our dining pleasure. I spent several childhood days looking for dead birds so my siblings and I could have a funeral and bury the dear soul under the huge oak tree. […]
