Recording Your Life History

Have you ever considered writing a book?

I have but had no idea where to start. I know if I was to write a book it would likely reflect my life experiences and especially my cancer experience. One day as I was surfing the net, I came across this bit of information.

It is a guide to Recording Your Life History written by Inova Health System.

I thought it was pretty good and therefore ... thought I would share it with you.

I very much want to do this Daria. It's in the plans for me, I know this. And I keep asking God for guidance on where to begin, how to share what it is I know. And then you posted this. Whenever I look, my prayers are answered in such blessings as this.

I hope you will write your history too Daria.

Thank you!

Thanks, Daria. Ron started writing about his life but took a break. I will share this resource with him.

Daria did you know you can make a book from your blog entries on a website called blurb. That is where I do all my photo books and they even download all your entries for you.
I hope you are having a nice weekend. We are finally getting some much needed rain here on the Island.
