This is part of a series of articles about writing your life story to see past installments check out our blog or past newsletters on our website www.LeaveALegacyToday.com. Last month we talked about why it’s a great idea to write your life story. This month we will start getting organized. Make separated pages in a word document or in a spiral notebook with a different category listed at the top.
These titled pages are for you to write down ideas and thoughts that you need to cover. It’s a book to jog your memories. If you think of something that you should tell about just write a little note about it. For example: on the Grandparents page I wrote “tell about when Grandpa lived with us”.
So have some fun getting organized and jogging your memory!
