Christmas in September? Whoever heard of such a thing?
We all know someone who does their Christmas shopping early, and September is not too early to shop for those we love–especially if you want to make the gift something special, which we all do.
These next few posts will be some ideas for Christmas gifts. Of course you will need to start now in order to have them completed by Christmas.
Write your memoirs, publish, and give a book to your close family and friends. A memoir is a collection of your memories. Remember, you can get a book self-published at little or no cost.

I have a large list of suggestions in my book “How to Write your Memoir:Three Simple Steps. If you feel you don’t have time to type it, try recording and getting it transcribed. Remember, it can even be about only one specific episode in your life, especially if it was a particularly important or life changing event.
