This is a new group for those interested in the DOING of
writing. Do you need an assigned topic? Do you need deadlines to
help get you motivated? This group is dedicated to writing family stories
for sharing with family members to ensure they don’t get lost.
The September topic is a memorable
Christmas or other holiday. Set the scene: Who was there? When
and where was the holiday celebrated?
Then tell what happened that made
the day memorable. Include, where appropriate, sensory images: colors and shapes, sounds, odors, tastes (of holiday dishes), and perhaps touch
Be sure to tell why this day stands
out in your memory. It may be because of the event itself, or perhaps
something that happened later gave it extra meaning.
Print up 3 copies of your narrative for sharing with others. Your audience will have the opportunity to make suggestions for
improvement as well as to enjoy your story before you share it with your
