EXERCISE Writing your Obituary

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Zen, Oct 3, 2012.

  1. So you have to write your own obituary. If you don't know what that is, it's basically a little blurb that you'd find in your local newspaper about recent deaths. It also lists their accomplishments in life, how old they were and how they died. For this exercise you could have died today, a year from now, or 50 years from now. The point of this exercise is to blend your creativity with a sprinkle of reality. You get to tell us how you died, and what were your accomplishments, if any. ​

    Caitlin

    Died at the age of 53 on November 13, 2046. Killed providing medical assistance to a clinic in an underprivileged country, as part of her services with Médecins Sans Frontières.

    Caitlin is survived by her husband of thirty years and two children, preceded in death by her parent, Cheryl.

    Hard-working, task-oriented and efficient, she dedicated her life to protecting those important to her and believed in a simple human equality, that all people deserve to be treated with human decency. She worked first as a molecular biologist while raising her own family and in her later years, traveled the world to help administer vital medical care. Her first love was learning, obtaining new knowledge for the sake of knowing and she adored both reading and writing in equal measure.
