Cross out those things that aren’t MAINLY about you and those that you can’t remember very well. – 1. The time my brother broke his arm – 2. My parents accidentally left me at the mall when I was four months old. – 3. My Florida vacation when I was nine. – 4. The shaving cream/ water balloon battle I had at camp last month. Consider your audience: Who will be reading or listening to your story?
