This prompt is to be completed in three sessions.
Session 1: Write about someplace or someone you knew as a child. Describe it or them in as much detail as possible. Put your writing away for later.
Session 2: Revisit the place or person described if you can (This is meant literally; go see that place or person). If location, time or mortality make this impossible, use your imagination. Without reviewing your previous description, write another description from your adult perspective.
Session 3: Compare the two pieces. What's the same what's different?There's no time limit on this; you can begin and complete this exercise as time and circumstance allow.
