What ‘chapters of your life’ would there be? Make a list of your life’s chapters. Choose one. Write five possible opening sentences to that chapter. Then write five possible ending sentences to that chapter.
Five Opening/Ending Sentences for Chapter One:
1.) Opening: My older brother screamed and violently threw himself against a wall the moment after my Dad uttered the words that brought my life into existence, “It’s a girl!”
Ending: He was happy again when Mom finally brought home a brother for us all…I screamed and violently threw myself against a wall at the thought of sharing my Mom’s lap with the little bastard.
2.) Opening: I can’t help but think I would have been loved more if my Mom had followed her original plan and named me after one of the Little Women. Preferably Beth. Everyone loved Beth.
Ending: I suppose being me is not SO bad…besides…didn’t Beth DIE in that book??
3.) Opening: He slapped my ass and I screamed my disapproval…if I’d known this was going to become a reoccurring theme in my life I might have crawled right back inside to the safe confines of my mother’s womb and made myself at home.
Ending: As it turns out, slapping back is not the answer.
4.) Opening: It was clear from day one that if I wanted to get anywhere in life I was going to have to work really hard on my personality.
Ending: Personalities are overrated.
5.) Opening: I blame most of my shortcomings in life on the fact that my mother refused to breastfeed me.
Ending: Pat says breastfeeding has nothing to do with my inability to forgive…I stand by my conviction.
