Life in 100 Words is an idea gleaned from Solid Gold Creativity:
The magazine, Marie Claire, recently featured a series to mark the centenary of International Women’s Day. It asked “10 women, 10 years apart, to offer their life story in 100 words.”
I will try this idea with students in the future but would really love you to respond with your own blog post or take the time to comment, telling us about your good self in exactly 100 words. It is harder than it looks.
Born in Sydney. Adopted as a baby, spent my first seven years in Tamworth. Moved to the coast. Met Anthony who knew about art, books and Doctor Who. Obsessed with cricket, history and dinosaurs. Moved again, third primary school. High school needs another 100 words. University needs many more. Reading obsessively, writing bad poetry. Teaching was an unexpected and important answer that keeps leading to more questions. India and London and India again. Sydney. Met Kate. Love changed for the better. Internet. Blue Mountains, mortgage and professionalism. Kids. People said they looked like me. Kiama. Community. Blogging. Photography. Family. Peace.
