I found the book to be indeed useful! It not only help me discover how to write about my family but where to start. Plus, there is plenty of exercises to help me scoop out those pieces I want to display on paper and what I really don't mind much about. She did an excellent job making this very easy for anyone to understand and use. I honestly feel a bit better knowing how to set myself up before writing down anything. I get all my thoughts out and then it just is so much easier to write. This book really is wonderful and helps me realize many things I would like to think about before writing, such as my audience, purpose, and theme.
Finally, I love books on writing books. They not only help but inspire me to be a better writer and know where to start! This book has done very well, helping me achieve my goals and begin placing my thoughts on paper so that I can write a nice book about my life and family!
Information About The Author:
Katie Funk Wiebe, professor emeritus of Tabor College, retired in 1990 after teaching English for 24 years. She has devoted her retirement years to bringing meaning to life through writing and speaking. Wiebe grew up in northern Saskatchewan, the daughter of Russian-German immigrants. With her husband and children, she came to Kansas in 1962. Her husband died seven weeks later. That experience prompted the writing of her first book, Alone: A Widow’s Search for Joy. She followed that with several other memoirs and personal histories. In addition to hundreds of articles, she has written and/or edited 18 books, recently focusing on aging. The Mennonite Health Association honored her with the Anabaptist Healthcare Award in 1993 for her work in mental health, women’s issues, and aging. Wiebe is the mother of three children, grandmother of seven, and great-grandmother of five. She lives in Wichita, Kansas.
