November is Lifewriting month. Traditionally, this is the time when we tend to count our blessings, contact old friends, and draw our families near. We also do a lot of reminiscing. Sometimes we think back to our childhoods, while other times our minds wander back to more recent times.

While you're doing all of this remembering, it's a good time to start writing about your life. Whether your audience is business readers, friends and family, or you keep your writing to yourself, it's important to write down those memories down while they are still fresh. After a bit of time, who knows? Maybe your lifewriting will be a best selling memoir!

Don't know where to start? Here are a few resources to give you ideas.
