First pick a topic for instance a wedding. Write down the story as you go along and lightly edit it  connecting the characters so that it all comes together in the end. Print and distribute to residents who are very proud. This is a lovely activity for seniors!

I do this with a bit of a twist - I tell the residents we are at the airport and we can take a plane to wherever they want. They each pick a place and we discuss what we'd have to eat there, animals we'd see, climate, etc. It is wonderful when the 'journey' brings memories to the surface. Once one of the residents said we were going to New York City to see a Broadway show - we stayed on that one for a week discussing musicals, what we'd eat, who we might see etc. Fun.
