I’m often asked, “Where do you recommend people start when they’re recording their memories.”
Sometimes, however, it’s not the starting that’s the issue. At the beginning, with a little brainstorming, ideas come down like the proverbial cats and dogs in a rainstorm. Then they don’t. That’s the problem. You encounter the “What do I write?” blues.
Breaking through writer’s block is important. Once coming up with ideas is difficult, it’s a slippery slope to procrastination.
