I used to keep a very detailed journal and have MANY volumes that go through my
childhood from age 8 and then well into my college years. But, as I became a
mom and life grew very crazy, I didn't take the time to journal my life. I
am so regretting it now as my memory is fading...even for events that happened
just yesterday (I am only in my early 40s).I have had a nagging
through the years to get my journal caught up...which I have ignored, telling
myself that I was too busy and it was too late. But the nagging has become very
overwhelming lately and I know I must put fingers to keyboard and get my stories
down before my mind goes any more. I was in the state of menatlly
readying myself for this journey of writing when I read your article. It has
helped me a lot and I am going to go open up my journal file right now and get
some words down. Thank you.
Great read, man. Thanks!
Trent Toone....you have done it again! Great article! As one of the Family
History Consultants in our War; I was just asked about how to write a Personal
History. I had some ideas but this article covered it all and more. Thank you
for your research of this subject.
