Create a Map of Your Life

Prompt

Create a map of your life. First, determine how you will organize your map. Will it be more like a treasure map with routes or will you have separate territories or domains? Consider the destinations. These might be locations of schools you’ve attended, homes you’ve lived in, or vacations you’ve gone. Or they might represent strong memories you have. Narrow down the most significant locations. Next, think about the map key and the symbols you might use. Will they represent key memories? Emotions? Significant people? Cultural forces? Will your compass rose have any significance? Will the four directions represent places or time or emotions or themes? Now sketch out your life map. Afterward, select a few key events and share how they form the larger story of who you are as a person.
