Last Saturday, I enjoyed the company of 350 people eager to research and write their family stories at the 21st Annual Central Florida Family History Conference. I gave four workshops alongside many other fabulous speakers. I enjoyed meeting all of those who came to one of my workshops or came by my Writing Your Life table.
I met people this weekend who, like you, want to put their memories down on paper for future generations to enjoy. I met people who want to interview their family members about their lives while they still can. I met people who want to write, but just can’t seem to find the time or aren’t sure where to start. I love reviewing conference comment cards and read that people were inspired to start writing in a five-year journal, create a family timeline or, most importantly, “start writing,” “write ten minutes a day,” “get my ideas on paper,” and “just do it!” Those comments helped me know that I did my job.
I hope that my presentations helped them, even a little bit, and I hope I can help you to get writing, too.
