Write About September


I haven't turned the page on my calendars yet, but it's here. A brand new month. September! For a writing exercise today, delve back into your memory bank and write about Septembers of the past and September today. I once had a short essay published called Summer Then and Summer Now. You can do the same thing with this glorious month that brings an end to summer and propels us right into autumn. 

To help you, here is a list of things that we think about in September. Maybe some of them will trigger memories for you, both good and not so hot. Write about both.

  • Back to school
  • First day of school
  • Favorite teachers
  • Labor Day activities
  • End of summer 
  • Grandparents' Day
  • First day of Autumn 
  • Changes in scenery
  • Family birthdays
  • 9/11
  • Household changes 
  • Clothing changes
  • Foods
  • Weather
  • Yardwork
  • Flowers
  • Songs
