A book about my life – the whole of it. Now there’s a thought! No, I don’t want to read it to the end. We are not intended to know too much in advance, lest we become discouraged or overwhelmed.
Sufficient unto the day…
However, I am going to write the story of my life. I am not a person who habitually regales others with long histories after a chance encounter. I am more likely to be the one listening to another’s story. When I can tear myself away from blogging challenges for long enough I am going to write my story, including the difficult parts.
Twenty years ago I began by writing some of my childhood memories, but I was unable at that time to contemplate writing about my experiences growing up.
Some of this earlier writing is on this blog in the Childhood Memories category. There is even a page to help you find it. My motivation for writing those chapters was to explore the differences between south suburban and northern industrial/rural England seen through the eyes of a child.
So I’ll keep this brief and see if I can begin my new project soon. I feel that the time is right to write about my experiences. I’m not sure when the time to publish them will be. Hopefully it will be a useful book.
Today’s prompt fro 365 Days of Writing Prompts is
This is your life
If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.
