Try to visualize your early life from childhood up to early years of marriage. If you were making a movie of your life, what scenes would you put in it. Make a list of possible scenes to illustrate your life. Maybe it would include a scene where you stand off to the side while grown-ups ooh and ahh over the new baby in the family. Perhaps the next scene would show you beaming with pride as you are announced the winner in the spelling bee. Some of these might be turning points in your life or illustrate your personality or family interaction.
Try to note down a couple of words for each scene on a list. The list should have at least ten scenes on it.
Now choose one of the scenes and write about that incident. Visualize it in your mind as though it was a scene in a movie. That will help you describe it in detail.
