You don’t have to remember your lifestory alone.
November 6 Activity: Organize a Lifestory Party
Since our lives are usually lived in community and our lifestories have evolved with other people in tow, take advantage of this symbiosis to write the best memoir you are capable of by accessing a collective memory of your life’s events.
Today, you will organize a lifestory party.
More of this NIMWM Activity is available with the free My Memoir Education membership, please join now.
- Invite people who were involved with you in the time of you memoir. Yesterday, I asked you to read to someone who was not involved with your life at the time of the memoir so as to get a more critical evaluation of your writing. Today, you are not reading any of your writing. You are gathering information.
- Ask your friends, your siblings and/or other people who might be able contribute to your info gathering. This is not a social gathering but an information-harvesting event. Tell your guests there will be a free exchange of memories, which you will record because you are writing a memoir. In this conversation you are free as are you guests to agree or disagree—but in the end, you are the one who has the task of choosing what details and what interpretation to those details will make their way into your memoir.
Please share this information with friends and family.
