Last week I said we’d been working on something a bit different. It’s been lots of fun for us, and I hope you enjoy it too…
Join us every day this week for Life Story Week
Some of you might remember a book we brought out two years ago this week, called Don’t Lose Your Story. It was a bit of a departure for us, actually – because the “techy” bits aren’t really the main point…
You see, I reckon everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s about them and their life, the people and places that have made a difference to them, or the history of their family. But it can be hard to know where to start.
Sitting down to actually write about your memories can be a scary prospect – I’ve faced down the blank page of doom many a time – but there are lots of tips, tricks and techniques you can use to make it all come much more smoothly and easily. And the end result is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family… the stories that would otherwise be forgotten. The knowledge of where they come from and what that means.
Not only do I think it’s a great book, it’s one that we all loved working on – and its “birthday” felt like a good excuse to do a bit more of the fun stuff. So we’re celebrating it in style with Life Story Week.
Every day this week, we’ll be adding articles to our Life Story Week webpage. Claire’s kicking us off this morning with a trip down memory lane in the first part of her “Memories of India” – follow her back 18 years to the seething streets and exotic beauty of India (and find out what Moominpappa has to do with it!).
Then check back with us tomorrow to read more about Claire’s amazing tour of India and her rather close encounter with a large gun! Kathryn will also be sharing some simple tricks to retouch old photos on your computer for free. See you then!
