Exercise #390: Self Knowledge
Posted 10/15/10

Today’s exercise comes to us from John Boylan.

Show us a medical testing, operation or other medical experience which stands out in your memory. Bring us into the operating room with you, or show us what it was like receiving that “your results were normal” letter in the mail.

You may, if you wish, show a character tackling this exercise instead.

Critiquers, you might choose to answer these questions for critiquing the piece:
     * Did you catch any spelling errors or other standard proofreading items? If so, note them for the author.
     * Can you relate to the story? Why or why not?

Word limit: 1200
Please use the subject line:
             SUB: Exercise #390/yourname

Why this is a self-knowledge exercise: Medical situations can be tense, happy, sad, or even joyous times. How we react to them and how we remember them varies from person to person. You may learn about yourself as you find something to share, or from what you read of another’s experiences.
