Whether you’ve started to jot down a few recollections or are still waiting to put pen to paper, it’s never too late to start recording those precious memories of your life – memories which make you the special person you are.
Just imagine a favourite uncle or a perhaps an influential teacher had written a book and what that would mean to you – this is your opportunity to do the same, and to record your treasured memories of them as well.
It doesn’t matter whether you have copperplate writing, a GP-like scrawl, use a word processor, or talk into a tape recorder, capturing recollections of yesteryear can be immensely rewarding and great fun too.
People write for a whole host of reasons: to remember a loved one; to ensure their parents or grandparents live on; because they’ve been asked to by grandchildren or a godchild, or maybe to record some of the social history of the past few decades, after all the last 50 or 60 years have probably witnessed more change than any other period of history.
Whatever the reason, have fun in celebrating your life – you’ll be glad you did… and so will those fortunate enough to see the results of all your hard work.
