The "Just Write" Books for Writing Your Story (Day)

Write Your Story

Everyone has a story to tell. If you’re on social media, you’re most likely already “micro-blogging” in the form of daily updates, posting photos, and sharing milestones and moments with friends and family. Why not grab a pen and paper, open your laptop, or (heck) bring out the old typewriter if you’re so inclined and just write? Your life story may also end up being a family treasure one day, a record of you and of family history that might otherwise get lost or forgotten. If you need some inspiration or direction, these books are a great place to start.
