Memories of Me: A Complete Guide to Telling and Sharing the Stories of Your Life
MEMORIES OF ME: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO TELLING AND SHARING THE STOIRES OF YOUR LIFE (Cedar Fort Publishing, release May 2014) enables writers of all experience levels to put pieces of their past onto paper, empowering them to create a legacy of stories and memory episodes. This memory-compilers’ companion not only introduces topics, but also sparks recall and creativity with in-depth brainstorming exercises and various writing samples, and provides just enough writing tips for writers to take pride in their projects—a veritable treasure chest of memories. MEMORIES OF ME helps writers decide what kind of “chest” they want to create, what “treasures” they want to put in their chest, as well as how, when, and to what extent they want to share its contents.

Author Laura Hedgecock is singularly aware of the value of a legacy of preserved memories. Her own grandmother left a collection. Ms. Hedgecock doesn’t just tap into her grandmother’s ideas—she taps into the passion of connecting with loved ones through memory narratives.
