Write about your name. Suggestions: You may consider your name’s origin, how you’ve changed your name (last name, nickname, name change, etc.), how others use your name, your relationship to your name, your name’s relationship to history, your name’s relationship to your family or ethnic history, etc.
Write non-stop for five to ten minutes and then go back and underline the key lines/ideas/images that emerge.
