1. Mapmaking :: PreView

Writing into the Morning with Kathy Dudley

Part I: Mapmaking

Make a map of the earliest neighborhood you can remember.

Include as much detail as you can.

Who lived there? What were the secret places? Where were your friends? Where did the weird people live? Where were the off-limits places?…

Part 2: Map Story

Now tell us a story from your map. “One day back in Brooklyn . . . “- and off you go, elaborating on your recollection that you and Damian Thomas used to throw frozen fish through garage windows.

Don’t edit yourself much; don’t try for anything finished.

“If nothing happens, it’s not a story.” Flannery O’Connor

    Donaldsonville. My home town. We lived at 111 Williams Street most of the time. My grandmother, Mama Teen, grandfather Papa Black, and great grandparents, MonSay and Uncle Robert (I don’t know where these names came from!) and my parents and I lived together in what they call a double shotgun cottage in Louisiana. A shotgun cottage is called that because if someone shot a gun through the front door, the bullet would pass through each successive room until it exited out the back door. Unlike in most northern houses, each room led directly into the next room. No hallways.

    I was very spoiled there. They loved me. My grandmother used to make me the most wonderful breakfasts. She would pick fresh figs every morning for me to eat. And because I did not like meat, she always removed the meat from my collard greens and let me fill up on rice, corn bread, and beans. Mama Teen was great. So was Papa Black. But I did not like MonSay and Uncle Robert. You have heard of racists? People who dislike people because of their race? Well I was an agist when I was young. I disliked them because they were old. Now I am getting old, and I really hope my grand kids are nicer than I was.

    One day i was sitting outside of my building with my friend. And i was listening to music eating chips and drinking soda. we had a football so we went and found a whole lot of people to play football. so we were playing tackle football for a long time. It was fun, especially when you hit someone that keeps running their mouth. After we were done i was feeling sore so i went and took a nice shower.

But we were getting yelled at. By he other people that lived on our block. So Me,Jesse, And Ally. Went to the side of the house and got the wagon. We went up half of our street since we live on a huge hill. The first person to go on was Jesse because it was mine and ally’s first time going down the street in a wagon. Of course he shoed us how to steer and stop it. It was mine and ally’s turn and Ally didn’t want to go on by her self so i went on with her and steered it and stopped the wagon. we drove into some old guys drive and he yelled at us.. So we go again but instead of going half way up the street we went on top of the street and it was me and Ally again but this time we didn’t go into the old guys driveway we went all the way down the street and past the street light but before we pasted the street light a car came. and almost hit us. then i stopped the wagon at the end of the street. Then Ally got off the wagon and stepped into a ditch and started to run but she snapped her ankle. Then that night we went to the hospital.

Every time I tell people where I live,they would always say something like:”You live there! That’s a ghetto place.” They’d probably say it like that because I’m a really nice girl.

    The oldest neighborhood??? I cant really remember but i remember my new house i sort of recently moved into was in 2005 the neighborhood was quiet there was alot of old people& it was pretty awkward being watched by some white neighbors they would watch us when we would take in groceries but now they moved and last year we had mexicans neighbors who moved in from the time that this lady who sell herself in Poughkeepsie died. so my mom told me to stay far away from those neighbors so i did but later on in the year i found out they weren’t so bad. they gave me a christmas present but first i was scared to open it but they got my this gorgeous jewelry stand where you can put your necklaces earrings its so beautiful& big they also gave me a 25$ gift card to Clears

She seems kinda creepy but shes a nice lady. My dad works on this house across the street from my house. My aunt lives next dorr to me and she always gives me ice pops and takes me out for ice cream. This lady that lives two houses down the street from me is always sitting on her balcany staring at little kids. I think shes weird, her grand daughters are my firends. And This Is The End Of My Short Passage.

    When i was living in Wappingers falls. I was brought up in wappingers falls and i lived on a farm or i guess you could call it a ranch it was filled with farm animals like goats sheep horses and chickens there were lots of them but let me get to the point already. One night when i was living in Wappingers i was woken up by the howling of a pack of coyotes they were snarling and growling all night. In the morning after my rough night of sleep well of no sleep i walked outside on the hill that was next to my house and started to roll down it. When i started to walk back up the hill from the bottom i heard a loud howl and then saw a huge coyote drooling from its mouth i darted down the hill ran inside hid under the covers and said i would never go outside again until my cousin came over that afternoon…….

  94. Isis Benitez says:

    It was a very sunny summer day around July 15,2002. so my whole family and i decided to go to the park. Around 12 o’clock noon we went to the park, and my family was doing the usual my dad was reading the newspaper, my mom was barbecuing, and me and my brothers were playing with my dog. As soon as it was dark outside we went home(it was just around the corner so we walked). We all went to sleep, but I heard something(it sounded so creepy, so i woke up and walked around he corner( my dad was with me). I was hearing stuff from the park, me and my dad walked to the park and we saw that the noise was a fight. My dad was yelling at the people to stop fighting, but it didn’t work they just kept on fighting. As soon as one of the guys pushed the other one on the ground he pulled out his gun and shot him in the arm. That same night my dad called 911. The police and ambulance came and saw the guy on the ground( the guys arm was dislocated and there was blood coming out). The police asked me and my dad if w saw the guy who shot him we both said yes. The police officer said ” You two are witnesses we will need you both to come to the station next week. After all that havoc me and my dad went to sleep, but what my dad didn’t know was hat that whole night iI couldn’t go to sleep.
