WRITE YOUR LIFE STORIES IN 15 MINUTES A DAY

Being professional personal historians, people ask us all the time: "Have you written your life stories?" We have written many of our stories and have made books to share with loved ones. But life is ongoing, new things are always happening, and new insights gained. So we have a few more stories to tell.

This year, Tom and I have each committed to set aside at least 15 minutes a day to work on our own pictures and stories.  So we thought we'd take you along for the ride!

Starting January 31, 2016, we will post a daily writing challenge of some sort: an exercise, writing prompt, or bit of encouragement. Our hope is that by the end of the year, you (and we) will have a stack of personal stories recorded. There is no obligation and you can jump in (or out) at any time. To receive a daily email, click the red "join" button. Or you can follow Pictures and Stories on Facebook for the daily nugget or visit this page for the archive below. Click here for more information about the challenge.
