#SOL20 Day 9 “Some Place”

SOL20This March I will be participating in the montOld Friend from Far Awayh-long Slice of Life Challenge. Each day I will be posting a ‘slice’ from my life. This year I am using Natalie Goldberg’s book Old Friend from Far Away: The Practice of Writing Memoir to provide my sparks for memoir writing. Each post will be a quick write using one of Natalie’s exercises.

We all come from someplace.      Where do you come from?    How did you escape? Go for ten.

  1. This post has me thinking of my own past and escape. The book has had such interesting prompts, I may have to get it for the #next100daysofnotebooking

  2. I love this- what a lot has influenced you! It was interesting to learn more about you. I also LOVE that this was straight from your notebook- I have thought of doing that too!

  3. I love the line “where change wasn’t welcomed with a wagon.” Good for you for finding change! Also, I definitely want this book now!

  4. Wow! You were an adventurer, Paula. I love your description of your hometown as well as the way you enbedded the story of where you settled. Today, I definitely have to buy this book by Natalie Goldberg.

  5. What a brave move you made, and aren’t you so glad you did?!? I have yet to use the prompts from this book although I have them for a back-up!
