Avoid the Telephone Game


Writing your life story allows you to share it in your own words, from your own perspective.

Are you familiar with the telephone game? Where one person whispers something to the next person, and that person whispers it to the next, and so on and so on until the last person in the circle hears it? That person then says aloud what she heard. If you’ve ever played that game, you know that what the last person heard is often way different than what the first person said!

Writing your own story, in your own words, makes sure that your grandchildren and great-grandchildren or great-nieces and great-nephews or whoever it is who reads your stories hears the story CORRECTLY, from the point of view of the person who lived it.
