You want to write about your life, a memoir of high points and maybe even the low points. You think about leaving a legacy to your children and grandchildren. Perhaps you want others to learn from your mistakes or avoid possible heartbreak. It is a great idea; however, writing in a timeline fashion – I was born . . . I went to school . . . I graduated . . . I got a job . . . I struggled with . . . I overcame it by . . . is not going to generate a whole lot of interest even among your children and grandchildren. You have to write with passion which may include humor as well as some painful recollections. Many folks believe they have “poured their heart and soul on the paper” when in fact they have written little.

Dr. Shirley Garrett wrote A Tap Water Girl in a Bottle Water Word: Reflections on Belonging and Believing. How did she do it – get her stories on paper in full color?
