This two-day writing workshop in my home, the Adobe House, in historic Tuscarora, Nevada, is about saving your best stories before they are lost or forgotten. Experienced or inexperienced writers will gain techniques for getting started on compiling family histories or composing their recollections of people, places, and events. Our stories should be saved for ourselves, our families, and our rural communities.

“The key to getting you story down is simple:  Scribble.  Just start and don’t stop.  The big mistake most people make is they get hung up trying to start at the beginning, and only God can do that.”
