MEMORY PROJECT SPECIFICS


The Challenge  

Each day, I will post on Facebook just one word, and the participant will recall a childhood memory that it evokes.  Because this project is more about awakening the memories than it is about writing, a participant has a few options about how to engage with the group.

The Options   

Facebook Only:  At the bare minimum, the participant should post a sentence or two or even twenty under the word on Facebook about his or her memory.   The Facebook page is private and will remain so.  Facebook participants have the option of including their writing and the project on their personal FB pages or blogs.

Participants are not required to share the memory, but I sure hope that they do!  Posting feelings about the memory is acceptable, also.

Facebook and Blog:  I will be posting my writing here on my blog each day.  If a participant is willing, I'd be thrilled if his or her memory could be added to the comments section on mine each day.  This can just be copied and pasted from FB.  I will include information pointing people to the comments section each day.  

The good thing about posting it on my blog is that since it is  a public forum, friends and family can follow the project if they want to.  I will be posting a link on my FB page each day which can be shared on the participants' pages.

I do hope to use some of these memories in the last chapter of my book.  If everyone completes the challenge, there will be over 900 memories shared.  That just makes me happy, happy, happy!

As a test, participants are asked to comment on this post.



I am participating in the Nester's 31 Days.  Check it out!

Looking forward to this new "project!" However, I do not know what HTML tags are. Also, I promise you that I am not a robot.
And, not sure about choosing an identity. Maybe this is too complicated for me. :/

I can't help you if I do not know who you are! You can sign your name. :)

Not sure if this is where I post my 31 days brief bio, maybe you can let me know if this is where it goes, Denise. Anyway my name is Al and I am a creative director in the advertising profession. I also have several books published on Amazon, kindle and other places. I enjoy art and all things art and creative.I delight in having time to be with my grandchildren. I'm also involved in visiting seniors in homes in my role as an ordained chaplain. It's both rewarding and heartbreaking, as many people never get a visitor. Mother Teresa once put it this way: The greatest of all human poverty, is loneliness. I look forward to this challenge of writing briefs on my memories for 31 consecutive days. Not sure what I've gotten myself into but I'm looking forward to finding out.

I've never been more excited about something I knew less about what I'm doing before...and happy to do it.

Denise Voccola said...

Lanette, you are cracking me up!

Kathy Wiedemann said...

Testing... again!

Chasity said...

I'm with Lanette. :) sometimes it is best to say yes to something before you really know what you are getting in to. Over thinking isn't always the best thing from my own experience. LOL
