More Memory Triggers – Your Young Adult Years

I recommend a book by Patricia Ann Case called How to Write Your Autobiography: Preserving Your Family Heritage. In it she poses questions to trigger your writing. They are arranged and grouped in a logical way, so you can progress through your life memories and get them onto paper. You don’t write in the book, but she suggests numbering your pages as you write to keep it in sequence.

For the young adult years, she asks questions like these:

  • Whey you reached your young adult years, did you see changes in your family’s way of life from the time when you were little?
  • How did those changes affect the family?
  • Were there modern conveniences added by your family by this time?
  • What trends did you see like people moving to the cities or away from the cities or other influences?
