Exchange Exemplar: Writing Your Own Story


Maybe Cat Stevens/Yusuf said it best: "we're only dancing on this Earth for a short while." 

Someday, someone will remember us with kind words (we hope). 

Alan Gelb urges us--ALL of us--to take a stab at our own life story.  Not the whole thing, but a key part of it. 

Gelb even inspired non-writers with his book Having the Last Say.  Alan Gelb paid us a visit in 2015, an interview recaptured here.
