Why Write Your Life?

Great article about curating your life in the NY Times, very relevant to my “other” business, Grace Memoirs. A short excerpt:

Dan Schuette, a 70-year-old retiree who lives in Sun Prairie, Wis., said he was surprised and inspired while writing 15 autobiographical stories he published in a book for his family. “I realized that I’ve had a pretty good life,” he said. “It also made me focus on what I still want to do. I visit the graves of my father and my 12-day-old grandson who died and have conversations with them. I realized that if I want my kids and grandkids to come see me at my grave, maybe I should be a larger part of their life, maybe I should get in my car and see them when it isn’t so convenient for me, or make another call.”
