Memoir Writing Prompt: National Author Day

What a great idea to set aside a national day to thank the authors in the world who have brought us the laughter, suspense, and tears through the written word. In 1928, while recuperating in the hospital, Nellie Verne Burt McPherson, president of the Illinois Women’s Club in Bement, wrote a letter of appreciation to […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Halloween Memories

In my childhood on our family’s Pennsylvania farm, I looked forward to the cooler fall weather every year. Before the cold winds blew and the first frost appeared, we climbed up the trees and gave them a good shaking to gather the last few apples or pears and store deep down in the well pit. […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Who was your favorite boss?

I remember as a child, yelling at my older brother and sister, “You’re not my boss!” Actually, my sister was my boss; I hung on her every word. She told me what to do and what not to do – how to behave and what not to say. That was the most difficult for me, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: National Taco Day—Yesterday!

Yesterday, October 4 was Taco Day. It’s hard to believe that I actually hated Mexican food when I first moved to San Antonio in 1973. The smell of it turned my stomach. But that all changed in two short years. Now, I could eat Mexican food for all three meals (and in-between snacks). Bean and […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What has made you the person you are today?

At 9:30 p.m., I found myself sitting in full daylight beside a glacier-fed babbling brook in Denali, Alaska. I had just started to feel a chill in the 40-degree temperature. The loud, fast-rushing rapids disturbed the otherwise peaceful surrounding. It’s funny that the noise reminded me of the troubles in this world that interrupt what […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What Sight Took Your Breath Away?

Yesterday, I visited Denali National Park in Alaska. Denali is the highest mountain in North America at 20,310 feet. The park ranger who led our tour asked, “What word comes to mind when you see that view?” Completely covered in snow (in August), Denali took my words away. One fellow tourist said Middle Earth; another […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What’s #1 on Your Bucket List?

The term “bucket list” no doubt originated from the Middle Ages when a person “kicked the bucket.” When someone was hanged, he stood on an overturned basket that was then kicked out from under the poor soul. But Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman made the term popular in their 2008 movie The Bucket List. Since […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: That Special Friend

I love this picture of my daughter (on the left) and her bestie (on the right) taken in Antelope Canyon at Lake Powell, Arizona. Best friends since elementary school, they spent long hours sitting up late at night talking either in person or on the phone. They commiserated with each other about their studies and […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Knock, Knock. Who’s there?

Where did that expression ever originate? Many of our everyday sayings we use were first spoken or written by the great bard himself, William Shakespeare. We don’t know his actual birthday, but because he was baptized on April 26, 1564 and died on April 23, 1616, England has dubbed his birthday to be April 23. […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: The Technology Learning Curve

I love this picture of my mom (92 when the picture was taken) brother, sister and her husband, and me. The technology bug has bitten us all. When did you get your first computer/laptop/iPad? When I visited my sister in San Antonio in 1966, her husband worked at Lackland Air Force Base. He came home […]
