The 50 Day Memory Challenge is a daily writing assignment I developed in early 2012. The original idea was to do it once a day. If you can accomplish that, great. If not, it doesn’t matter.The idea is to keep me writing on a daily basis while sparking old memories. I don’t have a very good memory, so I hope this challenge will help. Feel free to steal this challenge and do your own. Here are the guidelines:
- Upon completion, you should have memories of each age (that you can remember).
- Upon completion, you must have at least one memory that falls under each: Happiest, Saddest, Excited, Craziest, Vivid, Romantic, and Embarrassing.
- Try to include one memory of every person who was important to you at some point in your life.
- Memory must not be altered (to the best of your ability).
