It is over a year since this site has been updated. It is a long story, which I don’t intend to bore anybody with, but I am pleased to say “I am back”.
I have relied on others to help me with my WordPress site/s – but have taken the time to learn more so that I can be independent of others. I suspect I will still be in need of help, but have created another network to help me.
One other key issue in my life has been resolved. I have been working hard on various community organisations, and I am bowing out of doing that and focusing on my own writing business.
I have toyed with the idea of returning to university, but have made a decision to put that on hold for a while. Watch for more action on this site.
So many wonderful stories don’t get written or recorded. So I am going to set some challenges.
Computer Users – Create a folder in your computer call it your name, or “My Story” and using Word or similar, start writing. Start from the beginning. When and where you were born, who your parents were and about your siblings. Name them, write their birthdates if you can, and just write. Whatever comes into your mind. You might like to write it in a blog – details about that later.
Non-Computer Users – by a large exercise book, get a pen/pencil. (I prefer a pencil as I can edit easily.) Start from the beginning. When and where you were born, who your parents were and about your siblings. Name them, write their birthdates if you can, and just write. Whatever comes into your mind.
Easy? Well, it is as easy as that. Set aside time each day, or just give a specified time and pick up your book or open your computer and start writing.
Just get started.
Everyone has an interesting life – some more so than others. As many as possible should be recorded – the objective of The Official Biographer is to inspire everyone to either write their own story or have someone write it for them.
It doesn’t have to be a massive tome with every detail of one’s life – a 5000 word “Mini-Biography” if nothing else. If one has children of their own it is very important to let them know about YOUR childhood and your life.
