Here is today’s question: Do you have a story to tell? Have you ever wondered if your life experiences’ are fascinating or should be written down? You also know that other people telling your story would never do it the same justice then if you wrote the story yourself? How do you get started? What would I write about first? The book we will be discussing today will help you get started and serve as a guide to help you get your story down as well as help you achieve that peaceful feeling and renewed strength. And you can start right now! The name of the book is called Memoir Star: Start Telling Your Life Story. According to runawayteens.org One in seven kids between the ages of 10 and 18 will run away at some point. And there are 1 million to 3 million runaway and homeless kids living on the streets in the United States. The book was written by two runaways, Erika Karres and Susan Bowman. Susan joins us today and will tell you about her childhood in Connecticut and her running away. This book is a simple step-by-step plan to help you draft your memoir using prompts to guide you.
