I wrote a 918-word practice memoir about my relationship with My Three Half Sisters and my mother. I wrote about my adolescent years. I plan to fill in gaps in my narrative by writing about my childhood. There is an old photograph I am going to look for. In the photograph I am a baby and my sisters are holding me. I think we were at a mosque when the photograph was taken. Edi my memoir teacher said I need to write this scene with me, my mother and my half sisters at the psychiatrist’s office. I also want to write about when I visited my sister Alison often when we still lived in Brooklyn between the ages of twelve and thirteen. Me, my oldest half sister Alison and my friend Lisa went to a concert known as the Budweiser Superfest in the summer of 1994. My parents and I moved to Ewing, New Jersey later in August 1994.
