Being empowered and inspired is one topic at our Fall Telesummit November The Heart and Soul of Memoir Writing. We need to connect to our power and belief and at the same time continue to educate ourselves about how to write a book—from idea and conception all the way to having a beautifully designed book in our hands!
Even though I have published four books, I have to say that learned a ton about writing, designing, and publishing books during the weekend. The Telesummit this week is set up so you can have that experience—to gather knowledge and inspiration as you connect with each presenter. You can keep the audio recording as your resource in ongoing education. I know that many people are now using podcasts and audios as part of their learning regimen, putting it on their iPod and talking a walk.
May listen to the event after the Telesummit is over so they can focus on certain parts they need the most. We love giving the audience the opportunity to learn in so many ways! During the last session of the Telesummit, Brooke and I will be talking about inspiration and empowerment.
The writers talk about how they find their way to the page, how they sustain their writing and believe in their book. What inspires them and what gets in the way—and how they keep on no matter what. You will see how these writers struggle with what you struggle with day to day. We hope you come away with fire in your heart for your writing project as you join us for all the sessions and ask your own questions of the presenters. When you sign up you receive the call-in phone number , but you do not have to be present to join us, though we would love to hear from you in person during the question and answer period.
You will receive the audio for your own use to drawn from for years to come.

Beuchner speaks beautifully of books and regrets and grief and the imprints we leave on each other's lives, especially parents on their children.
It's a wonder that our hearts know and bear so much pain. He asks aloud questions we all have-what legacy will we leave behind? Will anyone care when we're gone?

What happens when we die? There's a depth of sharing here that makes one ponder the lifting of the veil on family secrets. Are these ours to know? Were all of them his to share?

Most importantly, Buechner, a Presbyterian minister, should know the solid truth of the Gospel, and that certainly isn't offered here, in spite of the perfect opportunity. If he had ever found the truth, this book, as lovely as it is in so many other ways, declares he's lost it, and that's the saddest part of this memoir. Oct 05, Lori rated it it was amazing. I loved it!

I had to keep my want to read book list next to me because he talked about so many books. Oh I wish I had a library like his it sounds amazing! It was great to hear about his views on life and death through the stories of his family and friends. I have so many more thoughts.

But I'm not sure what to write so I'll leavenit at that. View 1 comment. Aug 10, Joy rated it it was amazing. I really like the warm heart and practical wisdom of Buechner. There were two particularly sad passages in this book. Maybe they will want more. About his mother: "The sadness of other people's lives, even the people she loved, never seemed to touch her where she lived. I don't know why. It wasn't that she had a hard heart, I think -- in many ways she was warm, sympathetic, generous -- but that she had a heart that for one reason or another she kept permanently closed to other people's suffering, as well as to the darkest corners of her own.
Nov 22, Natalie rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-in , ones-that-changed-me. A balm, I think, for anyone processing grief or death. Wonderful writing - Buechner opens his heart and shares his hidden fears and loves. Jun 13, Andrew rated it really liked it. It's Buechner - the beloved Buechner as I heard someone describe him the other day - it gets four stars at least, even before you've finished reading the first page. I reckon I could read him writing about anything and end up feeling like it was reading time well spent. He's an artist, a true writer.
This book is beautifully set in his study library aka the 'Magic Kingdom' , the different objects and books bringing to life memories and visions of those he loved and loves. As in his other three m It's Buechner - the beloved Buechner as I heard someone describe him the other day - it gets four stars at least, even before you've finished reading the first page. As in his other three memoirs, he circles back on key life experiences and people, elaborating more and viewing them from different angles and in different lights.
He seems a bit discombobulated in this one. Conscious of his age and wondering how much longer he's got. More speculative about what lies beyond, even unorthodox. Then, in his inimitable way he peacefully and hopefully lands it in the depth of faith. The question he had in when this book was published about how much longer he might have on earth remains unanswered.
The beloved one is still with us, aged We'll miss him when he's gone, but his autobiographical works will keep him alive to us and known for years to come. May 17, Bruce rated it liked it.
