Publisher's Synopsis

Your Life Stories Are Worth Saving!

You have stories to tell.

They come out in conversation all the time. Funny stories, revealing stories, emotional stories. Stories that are entertaining, thought-provoking, silly, important. Worth saving. In writing.

Oh, you say. No. Not writing. They're not that important. Besides, writing is hard. And I wouldn't even know where to start.

Start here.

This workbook is designed to be used as a companion to D. Margaret Hoffman's essay collection Saving Our Lives: Volume One-Essays to Inspire the Writer in YOU. Once her life stories have inspired you to save your own (and they will), you can use this workbook as a roadmap to get you there.

No matter what your writing experiences might be, this workbook, used in conjunction with Hoffman's essays, will help you to work through the clutter and drill your way down to that one small thing that will give you the courage to begin.

And not only will this book get you to the starting line, but it will also encourage you to take that germ of an idea and grow it into a piece of writing that will save those stories of yours for whoever might need them down the road.

Use this book in a class, a writing group or on your own. Improve your skills, build your confidence and fill these pages with life stories that deserve to be saved.

You can do it. You can. And you should.
