Have you been thinking about writing stories of your own life? Some reasons you might consider plucking those notes from the shoebox and developing them now:
Step 1. Create your group -- yourself and friends who would also like to tap into their creative genies.
Step 2.Get our new, really easy to use book How to Write Your Memoirs, for yourself and friends. As in the Pawprints Creative/Fiction Writing Clubs, founders will get a free copy of "Diving Boards" upon proof of purchase of at least 6 copies of How to Write Your Memoirs. (Scroll down to see how.)
Step 3.In your first meeting, read the introductory section to get some ideas on structures that might work for you. Once you have determined how you want to proceed, turn to the section in the Table of Contents that relates to your thinking. Use the prompts to jog your memory and write for a half hour during your meeting. Read aloud and critique, as above.
Alternative Step 3.Open the book to any page after the Table of Contents and use the prompt(s) on the page to stimulate the group!
Step 4.Join our InasPawprints.com Memoir Writing Club and receive benefits of being able to be published online, and getting ongoing ideas to help keep the groups' stories flowing, how to improve recall, how to support each other when a particular memory is difficult, and much more.
