HOW TO UNLOCK YOUR LIFE STORY
The essential handbook for writers and non-writers wanting to write or record their own or a loved one’s life story with insightful trigger questions and story examples.
Funny-poignant-nostalgic-each chapter includes story examples, many from the author’s own sometimes-delightfully eccentric English family, as well as influences from European, Australian, Asian families and cultures.
It answers the questions:
Where to begin?And how?
What to include?
How to remember it all?
Do you have to start at the beginning?
Do you have to have creative writing skills?
To write your life story for the family doesn’t need the skill of a creative writer. Sometimes it is the simple everyday happenings that create fascinating glimpses into past lives.
