Exercise #503: Self Knowledge
Posted 1/18/13

Do you love yourself?

We are told to start there, to accept who we are and value our unique abilities. Even to value our weaknesses. But do we?

Give yourself ten minutes of free writing to answer this question. Then review what you scribbled during those ten minutes, come back and give us a SUB.

As always, you may 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.
     * Did the SUB seem credible to you? Why or why not?

 Word limit: 1200
Please use the subject line:
             SUB: Exercise #503/yourname

Why this is a self-knowledge exercise: This exercise may help you review how you feel about the person closest to you; yourself!
