The 50 Day Memory Challenge is a daily writing assignment I developed in early 2012.  The original idea was to do it once a day.  If you can accomplish that, great.  If not, it doesn’t matter.The idea is to keep me writing on a daily basis while sparking old memories.  I don’t have a very good memory, so I hope this challenge will help.  Feel free to steal this challenge and do your own. Here are the guidelines:

  1. Upon completion, you should have memories of each age (that you can remember).
  2. Upon completion, you must have at least one memory that falls under each: Happiest, Saddest, Excited, Craziest, Vivid, Romantic, and Embarrassing.
  3. Try to include one memory of every person who was important to you at some point in your life.
  4. Memory must not be altered (to the best of your ability).
