For several years when I lived on Beaver Island I offered workshops in writing and memoir-writing. The most popular was called The Ten-Foot Life, where I gave each participant a ten-foot piece of paper and their own table upon which he or she traced, visually and verbally, a variety of subjects across various life periods. It was amazing how this process brought up long-forgotten memories and helped focus the work on something other than “I was born….and then….and then.
