The Life Writer connects the generations, strengthens family ties, and shares life advice wisdom with everyone. It offers free Family Connection Packets that enable families to connect over the internet. Those provide collaboration tools so parents, children, and every family member can share stories, information, photographs and even write a life story memoir.
A whole bunch of things that help families connect, communicate, and share. For example: how to connect with Skype, how to connect with Email, connection calendars, special story requests, photos, recipes, advice, project requests, catch up request forms, Pearl of Wisdom request forms and help on writing a real life story memoir.
(Please see The Life Writer Family Connection Packet link on our home page for additional information).
The Life Writer has created a program called The Life Story Composer that enables anyone to easily and affordably write a life story memoir. The program offers a series of life story questions that the user answers. Those answers are organized automatically into an e-book with chapters. You can print that e-book out (as a hard or soft bound book) if you wish. The process has been designed to be easy to do and affordable – so that every family can have that opportunity.
The Life Writer's life story questions come from real world experience, working with our customers. The Life Writer began as a customized one-customer-at-a-time life story writing business and the special questions generated from that service have been incorporated into The Life Story Composer Program. They have been copyrighted, and are exclusively for The Life Writer customers to use.
Yes, please do. The Life Story Composer Program has been designed to let you easily add photographs, old letters, family recipes, newspaper clippings, or any other digitized item. Please add as many as you wish. When adding a photograph, please consider describing what was going on in the photo. Having photographs is great, but having the story behind the photograph is even better!
Yes. The Life Story Composer Program has been designed to let your family and friends help you write your life story, if you wish. They can also add photographs and other content. In order to do that, you email them a special link which we provide. That link will grant them access to your story.
The number is totally up to you. You decide which life story questions to answer, and how many. The Life Story Composer Program will select questions for you automatically, based upon your age, sex, and background. You can skip as many of those questions as needed, and use only your own if you wish.
Once you begin answering the life story questions, your book will automatically be organized into a pre-set format with chapters (that format is flexible, and you can change it if you wish). When you are done answering all the questions and have added all the other content, you can elect to have the book sent out digitally to The Life Writer's affiliated on-line publisher (additional printing fee required). Your final book(s) will then be printed by that publisher and delivered to your door via U.S. mail, UPS, or Federal Express.
No. No one else will see what you have written inside your book, unless you decide to share that with them. The Life Writer Ltd. does not routinely access or monitor customer projects, and would NEVER disclose the contents of any customer's book. The confidentiality of your life story is one of our highest priorities. We will ensure that your story remains confidential, and that it is only accessible to you (and those you have asked to help you with your story).
You will. As the writer of your life story memoir, you alone will own that final end product.
No. There is no time limit on completing your life story. You can take as long as you need to do that.
No. You do not have to print out your life story. That is just an option. If you would like to keep (and possibly share) the e-book version of your life story, you are totally welcome to. There is no book printing obligation required.
No. Your answers to the life story questions should include your thoughts and feelings whenever possible. The facts regarding your life are important, but your thoughts and feelings are often times more important. Those details will also make your story very interesting, and be appreciated by your family and friends. Tell them what you thought and how you felt.
You decide how long your answers will be. Your answers can be short (just a sentence) or long (dozens of pages). There is almost no limit to question answer length, so please answer the questions with as much detail as you wish.
You can order as many books as you like. The book printing option begins at one and extends out to as many as you need.
Your book's final length will depend upon how many questions you have answered, and how many photographs (or other items) you have added. The average life story book ranges from 130 to 250 total pages, but The Life Writer's affiliated publisher can print books anywhere from 32 to 740 total pages in length.
