Write on Wednesday - I remember

Write On Wednesdays

The Write On Wednesdays Rules: Feel free to get creative with the writing exercises - there is no right or wrong. But please do try to visit the other members of Write On Wednesdays. You can grab the button for Write On Wednesdays if you fancy doing so.

Write On Wednesdays Exercise 3 - I remember: Write "I remember" a the top of your page. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Use "I remember" as your prompt and write down the first words that come into your head for 5 minutes. Stop when the buzzer rings! Do this exercise over and over if you wish. I will try to do it every morning this week. I'll let you know how I go...I am hoping that the thought of having to tell you all about my progress will be the motivation I need to keep at it! 

Write On Wednesdays: I remember...

The pitter patter of the rain drops on the tin roof always brings back memories flooding in. Rain in the country is a rare thing. It is celebrated every time it comes. I love the smell of rain; the contact it makes with the dusty ground always soothes me. I can sleep well whenever it rains. One of the fondest memories I have of the rain is; living out west and my grandparents had come to visit. I can clearly see and hear my Dad and Granddad busily fixing the tank. It is one of those old tin tanks on a stand. It was fun to climb around on. There is swearing and cursing from my Granddad. The water pours from the tank spraying everywhere. I remember mum letting my sister (aged 2) and I (aged 5) run under the spray. I can remember the fluffy towel that my Grandmother cuddled us dry in; it was so comforting. I don't know what the fuss and hurry with fixing the tank as I don't remember it raining that time. However whenever it rains I remember this scene.


  1. I too love the sound of rain on a tin roof :) it's nice remembering isn't it!

  2. So many childhood memories are tied up with rain, sprinklers and playing in water. It's hard to tell a story from the perspective of a young child, but you've kept it true.

  3. Rain is such a mood changer. I think you have captured its calmness and the safety it brings. Thanks for sharing your memories and playing along with Write On Wednesday! Gill xo
