John Marsden Writing Topic #53

Choose someone else and write down the ways in which you’re similar to them and the ways in which you are different**

For this writing topic, I have chosen my mother.

The ways I’m similar to my mother are the way I look, the way I worry, how much of a perfectionist I am, the way arthritis affects us, we also have a similar work ethic and sense of humour.

The ways I’m different to my mother are the ways I deal with my emotions, the way I feel about religion, the way my personality is, the ways I work, the way I sleep and the way I live.
