A Collage of Perspectives

.. the most skilled and engaging memoirists, to my way of reading, don’t dwell quite so much on what happened, but instead on the question that I feel is at the heart of memoir: why do I remember a particular episode (series of episodes) that way?" ~ Debra Gwartney

Interview three people about an event that had meaning in your life. Ask what they observed about your behavior and responses to the situation. Notice differences and similarities in their responses.

Write from a collage of perspectives. It will enrich the event for you.
