I am going to try something new over the next few months. I am participating in a writing group called The Book Of Me (Written by You). As a family genealogist and historian, I often spend most of my time thinking and writing about the people who lived in the past. The purpose of this writing group is to explore who I am, right now in the present. The end result is that I will have a lot of information and memories to leave behind for my descendants. It will also give me an excuse to do some of my own writing, instead of just transcribing letters and making commentary. This writing prompt (and group) has been created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog. As a weekly blog prompt, I will most likely post on the weekend. Some of the posts I might share, some I might not (if they get too personal). And never fear, I will still continue to post one World War II letter a day.
So here is the first prompt – Who Are You? This is a recognized psychological test. Ask yourself the question 20 times – Who are You? Each time you should give yourself a different answer. The purpose is to see how you view yourself. It is alright if you come up with more than 20, but you need to find at least 20.
Instead of trying to list my answers by their perceived importance, I chose to list them chronologically and as they developed.
I am Deborah, not Debbie.
Finally, a brave Wolverine.
