Get a notebook!

It’s easy to start writing your story.  No computers, no technology, nothing but a notebook!

Now what to write?  Your life is made up of facts and stories.  The facts can always be recreated.  It’s the stories that count.  So…pick out a story.  Just one.  It can be about anything.

Your notebook is a workbook.  It is not meant to be perfect.  It is not meant to be your completed project.  It’s your story.  Just that.

So pick a page and start brainstorming.  Your first Christmas.  Your first grade teacher.  The first time you saw your spouse.  Whatever you want.  When you are finished, start another story.  It doesn’t have to be consecutive.

The sorting will come later.  So for right now, get a notebook and start writing.
