Writing for Your Life

"My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way."
-Ernest Hemingway


  1. Planning to write an autobiography Jo?

  2. ….In a faraway land lived a little girl with a vast Imagination. She had golden hair, sparkling eyes, and she liked to sing. She was always laying on the damp grass, hands behind her head, deep In thought, and her favorite doll beside her to keep her safe. One day Mummy and Daddy decided to go for a walk. Want to come with us or do you want to stay here? Where you go? To the shop? Sweeties? Yes, you can have sweeties. Come on, It will be fun? Really? Yes really. So they all set off, and headed down a dirt track road, and came across a red bridge. The bridge was narrow, but held a very Important secret. What's wrong Mummy asked? Is It safe to walk across? Yes love. It Is very safe. Look, Daddy Is across, come on? OK. As the little girl walked on to the bridge, she gazed down Into the river. Look Mummy? Do you see? What love, what am I looking at? In the water, do you see me? Yes I see you, and…

  3. 'and Fern and there is someone else beside you ! Who is that? The little girl smiled knowingly and whispered that is my best friend, he only comes on sunny days. The mother looked puzzled. I can't explain it, said the girl, it's something I just know deep inside me and no on can take it away- only myself.'

    I'm not planning to write an autobiography yet mk! Need To feel more of life.
