Life Stories Class in Session May 2015

Class is in Session

May 5th, 2015

Spring is a great time of year to begin new projects and writing our life stories should be one.

This last Tuesday marked the beginning for the latest Writing Life Stories class sessions I’m giving at Shipley Center in Sequim. It certainly is good to meet you all.

We learned a bit about each other and I spoke about writing being a process and a discipline. I also spoke about the reasons why we write. As we write, we should bear in mind these questions: What do we want to tell? Why do we want to tell it, and to whom?

We might want to label and organize our life stories in an age-appropriate manner.
