The Brief: Using an early childhood memory, design a book that focuses on certain aspects of the experience. The aim is to take an interesting aspect of the memory and transform it into the narrative of the book.
The memory I chose was one from when I was very young and unable to swim properly. I remember getting into great difficulty in the water and had to be helped by passers by. Even though this was scary at the time, I instead wanted to focus on the moment when I began to sink under the water when a moment of calm washed over me. This led to my book being titled 'Halcyon', which means a moment of peace or clarity.
