Memoir – A Creative Writing Assignment

I was cleaning my room when I found this blue notebook in one of my drawers. It’s been there since 2014.

What was I doing in 2014? Mostly reading and drinking. But I also took a creative writing course, which sucked… but, to be fair, I did “learn” a few things… and it was fun.

At one point, I was assigned to write a memoir. However, since I’ve already been keeping one for years, I decided to make this one a little entertaining for the teacher.

Here’s what I wrote:

Just thought I’d share it with you guys.


I have forgotten how to write

I used to sit and write for hours.
Think, type, take notes on paper.
Think, type. Type.
But not anymore.
I have forgotten how to write.

No, it’s not a writer’s block.
I write all the time,
but I just don’t write for myself anymore.
That is the problem.

I used to sit and write for hours.
Stories, poems, essays,
and sometimes I would just play games.
I used to think,
type. Type.
But not anymore.

I only write for money now.
I don’t write for myself.
I’m sad.
