One of my New Year’s resolutions is to convince my sister to write a blog with me that tells stories from our childhood from both perspectives.
The purpose is threefold:
1. To create a reservoir of stories for our children to enjoy someday.
2. To tap the superhuman memory that my sister possesses and recover memories lost to me.
3. To trick my sister into writing large parts of my memoir.
After ten months of pushing and prodding, I think I’ve finally convinced her to start writing.
The fact that she’s not working four jobs might be contributing to the free time as well.
She wrote her first post in months last night, and an hour later, a second post arrived via email.
I’m hoping this is a sign that she’s caught the bug.
If you’re interested in reading, the blog is titled 107 Federal Street, named after the address of our childhood some, and can be found here.
