An Appalachian Country Rag--Writing Rite



A Country Rag Writing Rite





Historic Jobo TN  Mixed Bag Literati Tips on writing a heritage creative non-fiction bio:

... because the process of language transfigures the reality conveyed and because memory is imperfect:
This is a painlessly possible avenue of approach to a task that may seem overwhelming in contemplation as a completed goal for structuring a keepsake memoir for self, friends, family and community....

1. Divide life into topologically-related chronological groupings: e.g. childhood; teens; 20s; 30s; 40s; etc.
2. Give sections (chapters) preliminary subject-relevant titles.
3. As stories (anecdotes) come to mind in everyday life, take time to write them down separately (as in a diary) and place each in correct time sequence within the appropriate chronological grouping chapter.
4. Modify chapter titles as appropriate to material gathered within them.
5. Reread content for coherence; correct spellings and grammar where needed.
As a dynamic storage medium, the internet provides convenient, easily-updated, and individually-sculpted methodologies. Historic Jobo TN  Time Capsule
