Exercise #360: Self Knowledge
Did you see the recent MISC post about Writing Life Lessons? For this self-knowledge exercise, come up with a one-line life lesson you would add to the list. Then briefly explain why that one line is your “life lesson.”
You may, if you wish, show a character tackling this exercise instead.
Critiquers, with an exercise like this one, you might choose to answer these questions rather than using a different technique for critiquing the piece:
* Can you relate to the life lesson? How and why?
* Did the writer present a valid case for adding this life lesson to the list of them?
