Stories from Things

The book has 10 Simple Steps. Each Step is written like a hands-on guide with examples of ordinary things that people live with. The examples range from ordinary things selected from your living room to the sports bag to the kitchen drawer and dressing table to your heirlooms.Things kept in storage that you are yet reluctant to part with. Things that tell your stories are your memoir.

The journey to writing the memoir begins by becoming aware of the Material World that people build around them over the years. Memories reside in objects. The 10 Steps of the journey are about how to recall your past by selecting and listing the items, displaying and creating conversations around the objects, then researching to fill in information gaps before beginning to write.
