The fourth book in The Write Spot series, The Write Spot: Memories is a collection of writing from fathers and their adult children, ranging from personal stories to fiction to creative nonfiction. These diverse stories embrace a common thread of love, disappointment, discoveries, and revelations.
Memories travels from a daughter’s perspective about her absentee father to a soldier’s diary during WWII to a fisherman in Scotland to tributes to quirky fathers.
Memories is both entertaining and instructive. Writing prompts at the end of each story motivate readers to become writers.
The Resource section includes information on how to do freewrites, visualizations to inspire writing, how to improve writing, and how to trust the writing process.
The Resource section also contains a list of books about writing.
