Heritage Writing encourages, stimulates, and offers organization for the writing of childhood or family memoirs. After convincing the reader of the importance of preserving these memories, Heritage Writing calms writing- related hesitation and fears, cajoling those first words onto the page. By sampling the many techniques for recording Heritage Writing, the reader is able to decide on his or her favorite way(s) to preserve personal memories on the page. Issues such as Point-of-View, incorporating emotions, using only slices of life, and family secrets all are discussed. The last third of the book offers constructive and detailed suggestions for the written result: sharing, booklets, games, writing with children, selling stories, etc. A list of Favorite Related Materials is included.

From the Back Cover:

Heritage Writing is not genealogy research or family history interviews waiting until I know the entire story or all the versions waiting for some important occasion to begin The Great American Memoir waiting till everyone agrees that I am a skilled writer waiting until tomorrow waiting till I build an office or retreat to write in waiting until I'm inspired waiting until I can afford a word processor or computer or software waiting until I think of the perfect sentence or subject to begin with only the momentous stuff Heritage Writing is thinking about the old days remembering incidents, people, ways of looking at things a means to make our mark in the world how we can tell who we really are and what really happened good, inexpensive therapy a way of deepening excitement for life something that makes us feel fulfilled enjoyable.
