Writing Down the Memories
I recommend each month checking the memory triggers and trying out one or two. Hopefully the topics she suggests will help you get memories onto paper.
Now I’m trying to carry on her tradition of helping people preserve their childhood memories. I meet weekly with a group of women and we share our family memory writing each week. My contribution is to come up with a topic for them to write about and to provide enough memory triggers to inspire them.
I’ve started putting these on a website so others can use them as well. If you want to browse through these, here’s the website for Writing Triggers for Family Memories. Each week I post a new topic, so come back often to see those. I suggest bookmarking or favoriting the site.
