This is my first post for Write On Edge, an online community of writers. RemembeRED is WOE’s memoir prompt.
This week’s prompt is not the usual “write 400 words about xyz.” It’s short and sweet: Imagine your life, or part of your life, as a title and tagline.
So … without further ado …
Line of Descent
A father’s secret is exposed. A daughter’s identity is reshaped.
On April 22, 2010, my dad suddenly passed away. The next day my mom dropped a bombshell on me. From that moment on is the part of my life I’m describing.
“Line of Descent” has a double meaning for me, as “descent” refers both to lineage and psychological decline.
PS: I plan on delving into this family secret and how it’s affecting my life in my next blog post. So if you’re intrigued, stay tuned…
