Age 81 and Writing Life Story

by Jacqueline

The story I am writing about my life is in progress.

I am calling it "Memories" and hopefully my children and their children will enjoy reading it someday.

It has been several months since I started it, and right now I am in a "stall" mode. So far I have arrived at the time in my life when I am getting married.

Since I am now 81 years old, there is a lot of story left yet to tell. It is being written on the computer which makes it easy to proofread and rewrite as many times as I feel it is necessary.

Included in my story are "memories" of my life before my father died (when I was only 4) and after he died. Naturally there aren't many memories before he died as I was too young. Also included will be the many moves I have made in my life and the different homes I have lived in, which number 15.

There are stories of my life living on the farm with my grandparents, moving in with my mother as a teenager, living with my husband and having seven children, and then living alone with my husband after the children are all gone.

As I said, I have a long way to go with my writing.

I also plan to write a story of my life memories.

Hopefully it will flow well and let my children and grandchildren know me as a person and not just as "mom" or "Nana"....not that there's anything wrong with that, but it will be nice to share with them.

Good luck with your endeavor, I'm sure it will be wonderful.
