Twenty years ago I had never heard of Reminiscence Writing. The dean at a North Carolina community college where I was teaching called me in, showed me a newspaper clipping about a class in Oregon, and asked, "Could we do this here?" I foolishly said yes. He asked, "How about working up a syllabus?" So I did-heaven only knows what I wrote! We offered it, and a dozen people showed up. And we were off and running. Now I've taught Reminiscence Writing a dozen times, as a course of six weeks or a semester-at that same community college, in Duke University's Institute for Learning in Retirement (four times, a record in a program where classes are normally offered only once), in a retirement program at North Carolina State University, and even at a local retirement community.I teach my students a lot. And they respond by teaching me even more. Everything in Tell Your Story has come out of experiences in these many reminiscence writing classes.The message for you: You have a story to tell-even if you don't think you have ever done anything interesting. "Interesting" comes from how you tell your story, not what you have done or seen. It is important for you, and your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, to preserve your stories-interestingly and readably. If you don't, something valuable has been lost. You're not a writer? No matter. If you can write a postcard (or, today, an e-mail), you can tell your stories.This book will show you how. One step at a time, you'll write down the interesting stories of your life-and they will be interesting, because of the way you will tell them. You'll accumulate lots of stories-more than you would have imagined. You'll compile them into a slim, but growing, volume. And you'll have them printed (affordably!) to share with family and even with the wider world. For an excerpt, please see www.csanford.comIn this book I've included some of my favorite reminiscences. Now let's get started on yours.

About the Author:

I've been writing all my life, and I've always been interested in language. I was an English major in college, and learned several languages along the way. I spent a year in Germany, and then two years with the Peace Corps in Thailand-teaching English, of course. Since then, I've done some teaching, mostly at the community college level, but also a variety of other things. I've been a counselor at a ghetto school, I've been a reporter and ad salesman for a small county newspaper, I've set up job-training programs, I've run a small home-repair business, and I've managed an apartment for low-income elderly. Along the way I've done a lot of writing (without finding the time to get published) and I've taught a dozen Reminiscence Writing classes.At last, semi-retired, I am finding time not only to continue writing, but to take the final and equally necessary step of getting my writing into print. I'm expecting to make several books available to the public this year: Tell Your Story, two popularizations of biblical scholarship, a book on relationships for older singles, a book on planning an individualized wedding ceremony, and others.
