Keeping Spirits Alive—Tap Memory and Write Memoir

Memories . . . If you don’t write them down, they will be lost. Wouldn’t that be a shame?


Lynn Henriksen invites you into a spirited and soulful world where the focus is on “Keeping Spirits Alive.” You’ll find keys to unlock memories and how to perceive them in a whole new light. Tapping memory creatively will trigger unexpected impressions and provide the means to move memory into memoir with honesty and imagination. Learn why emotional memory is the all-powerful catalyst in discovering the character and spirit of people and the significant events you want remembered. Then find out how to use emotional memory to create stories filled with passion and energy. After all, that’s what will make the memoirs only you can write memorable.

Whether you’re just thinking about writing memoir or well into it and whether your stories are heartwarming or heartwrenching, get your creative juices flowing and awaken your voice to breathe life into inspired memoirs.
