I know a lot of folks here talk about writing specifically with an angle towards publishing / earning a living from writing, but I wonder how many people here write purely for the pleasure of writing? - And in particular, I wondered how many people have considered writing memoirs or pieces on their own family history purely for their family's interest?
Researching ancestors lives seems to be a big hobby these days. Here in the UK Public Records Offices seem to be full of people trying to trace their father's and grandfather's wartime service records, or census returns as to where great-grandparent's lived or when they got married, etc. And there are plenty of ancestry research websites that are doing a thriving business on-line.
I wondered how many people had considered writing about their own lives for their descendents? What might seem ordinary and everyday to us now might well be of great interest to our children, grand-children, or great-grand-children, etc.
Is anyone here doing this?
