My Tales — A Writing Challenge to Preserve Family Memories

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 really hate to see it end!   So 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. In addition, I will include some personal ideas for personal narratives to include with our family tales. Each week, I will post a page to share your stories, and keep favorite memories alive for those who follow in our footsteps. To find information about this writing challenge, just check the sidebar category list, 1. My Tales on my home page.

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,

  1. I am with you! I need to get my Family History Project organized and this sounds like the perfect venue. Plus I could see what other writers are doing. I may borrow your 52 ancestors challenge as well, if you don’t mind. 🙂

  2. I’ve been working on my lineage for a few years now and a few months ago started a site. It’s been a long haul. I hope our sites don’t get confused with our names. I’m Tales From My Lens and look forward to this challenge. I just have to finish up 365 Days then figure it all out how to join in. This should be interesting reading everyone’s stories.
