Pairs of Sentences (Part One)

Birth and Death
Marriage and Divorce
Arriving and Leaving
Full and Empty

Pick one of the pairs above. Write the first and last sentence of a story. Use the first word in the first sentence and the second in the last sentence.

Complete this part before going onto part two (which I will be posting next week). If you’re going to do more then one of the pairs, consider doing 2 ahead of time and then doing the other 2 after having read through the second part of this exercise.



I am Myself I am a Wife Blessed with love I am a Mother Endowed with divinity Through the power of creation I am a Daughter Brought into this world With unending hope And the promise of the future I am a Sister Made fierce and strong While forged with kindness Protector and protected Spiraling together forever I am a Nurse Holding out the hands of healing And offering the sick comfort And the dying love Knowing that through this All things are healed and made whole I am a Writer Creating myself and world Sharing the inner depths of humanity Bringing together the divine And the humble mortal I tell the story of the Goddess And am remembered forever
