Memoir memories

Sheila and Jan went back and forth like the seasoned team they are, covering many aspects of writing a memoir, including their own personal experience. I kept waiting for them to break out into a Saturday Night Live skit with Alec Baldwin, but we couldn't get him to appear. [ Note: We didn't even try! ]

The crowd of over 20 people remained spellbound and attentive as Jan shared from some letters she found that her father had written to her during the war. They discussed several writing techniques to help one get started in putting their thoughts down, and added excitement to writing memoirs - something that isn't easy to achieve.

They run a story circle up in Safety Harbor that you can find from a link on the right side of this page. Overall a well-received and enjoyable evening.
