In the previous module, you were asked to:
Note down your earliest childhood memory
List other childhood, youth and adult memories that are important to you.
Aim of this module
The aim of this module is to kickstart writing the first chapter of your transition story, then to sketch out what might go in your remaining chapters.
In this module, the first exercise is to write about your first childhood memory in as much detail as possible. The reason for doing so is that our childhood memories can be fundamental to our sense of who we are. Describing them in as much detail as possible can enable us to vividly recall the sights, sounds and surroundings associated with that memory. In turn, this can prompt us to begin not just to write our story, but to reveal the personal insight it might provide us.
This module also asks you to sketch out the key themes in what might become the remaining chapters of your transition story; based on the other childhood, teenage and adult memories you noted down in Module 1.
