You will email your story to your partners. Pick one story from your life or one person in your life and tell us about it. minimum 200 words. New swappers welcome. No recent 1s. You have 1 month to write your story.

The idea behind this is: Each story is a memoir. Keep a copy of your stories. If you continually do these, you will build up your memoirs and eventually have enough for a book. I've coached many people to completion of their memoirs using this method of assignments. If you are stuck, Let me know and I'll send prompts. Also, post prompts in the comments if you'd like.

New swappers welcome!

I also have a traveling journal version of this. It's travel card is full, but working on starting another. Let me know if you'd like to be included.
