Beginnings

Write about a beginning in your life. Did you know it when it happened or do you see it now by looking back?

Experiment with different beginnings for your story:  where else could this start–earlier, later? what other voices or perspectives?

If someone asked each primary character in your story “how did this all begin?” how would they answer? What would be similar in their answers? What would be different?

Use the image as a starting point. What strikes you? What’s on the other side of the doors? What’s on this side? Where did the doors come from?
