Rapid Recall

Lesson 254: September 11th, 2007
Write the first thing that comes to mind, even if it's not all true. Use the starters provided. Do all four at once. Don't stop to think. Write fast!

1)RECALLING THE PAST MAKES ME WANT TO revert back to an eight year old. I would come home from school to a nice warm house with my Mom in the kitchen whipping up some yummy treat. No worries, no cares.

2)I RECALL WINCING when the dentist poked my gums with the needle. I was so sure that this appointment was going to be the worst one yet. Twenty-eight years of very little professional dental care had taken it's toll on my teeth.

3)THAT'S NOT ALL HOW I RECALL WHAT HAPPENED that cold winter night. My sister remembers it all so differently than I do. I say the first cougar scream echoed through the night while we were chopping a hole in the frozen pond. Stacey thinks we heard it while we were still at the barn.

4)I REMBEMBER FACES BUT I NEVER RECALL THE NAMES THAT GO WITH THEM. FOR EXAMPLE tonight in my CPR class, a woman smiled and asked how I was. She looked so familiar yet I cannot recall how or why I know her.

I don't know if this is as much fun for you as it is for me... but I really do enjoy your writing lessons

Thank you! I am having fun with it, though noticing that I'm out of my usual writing style on most of them. I guess that's not a bad thing!
