Who wants to preserve family memories for those who follow in our footsteps?
As I reflect on this past year of my writing challenge, 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks, I have a sense of pride and a sense of accomplishment. For once this challenge ends, I will have 52+ stories about my family. Through this writing adventure, I have discovered so much about my ancestors and even a little about myself, and I hate to see it end! Now, I have created a new writing challenge for 2018, but this time, I believe writers should also include more personal narratives to add their family history. To keep me moving forward on this journey, I have started a new writing challenge called My Tales. It would be fun to have family bloggers join in with this writing adventure. Who is with me?
Every month, I will place some new themes to write about to keep our family stories alive. Also, I will include some personal ideas for personal narratives to add to our family tales. If you would like to share your stories on my blog, just link your story in the comments, and I will add your blog site and your story to this page. To find information about this writing challenge, just check the sidebar category, My Tales Writing Challenge 2018 and click on the picture, and it will link to the writing challenge information.
One thing I have discovered is that I have found some new blogging friends who have offered support and encouragement as I have shared my family tales. So let’s keep our writing adventures alive as we share them others who enjoy sharing and preserving family stories and traditions.
Just Keep Writing,
The Storytellers ~
