It's always fun to get in some writing practice. No matter if you're going to be taught in school and want a head start or a way to keep things in memory. The book I was interested in, is called Writing Your Life by Mary Borg. This book isn't about just writing about anything, but instead, it's more personal. You will be learning to write about you, yourself and the stories you want the reader to know about. The guide is just a helpful tool to get you started and help you finish successfully. I love that it's got some tips to help you get comfortable before starting and what to think about or how to get some positive ideas of what you want in the story down on paper. Of course, the entire story of your life would be long so why not do just parts you want to keep alive and add them. It could even just be like a memoir, only a book with a few parts that focusing on one particular part of your life, maybe children or special times in your life. This book can really help you out with that as well! Finally, for a child or adult, this is a super book to own! The author did a wonderful job with the guide and it's extremely helpful. So many tips and ideas to help anyone get started writing a book of their self.
