Tips for Writing Your Memoir by Marion Woodfork Simmons

For this week’s post I have found a gem of an article on Kathy Hansen’s Personal Storytelling news (a story-telling news aggregator I follow). Marion Woodfork Simmons, of Woodfork Genealogy, has a gem of a blog post from June 24, Telling Your Story: Tips for Writing Your Memoir. I couldn’t have said it better, and I especially love the mention of preserving history along with the stories. Her blog is called Discovering Yesterday: Preserving the history of ordinary people.

Wishing everyone a happy family- and friend-filled July 4th! Be safe, keep cool.
