In this episode of The Nancy Ferrari Show, I welcome Alan Gelb, writing coach, author of numerous fiction and non-fiction books, who will share his latest book “Having the Last Say: Capturing Your Legacy in One Small Story”.
As Alan is one of the 75+ million babyboomers, he wrote “Having the Last Say” as our generation focuses on making sense of the third act in our lives. He helps his readers construct brief narratives that serve as a means of sharing their most formative experiences and values with those closest to them. He provides tools to people who never considered themselves “writers” so they can eloquently express themselves. Akin to the ethical wills that have long been an element of Jewish tradition, “last says” are 500-1000 word stories that can be delivered orally or kept as a keepsake by family and a legacy for future generations.
His book truly makes your experience one of ease as he shares prompts how to get started, how to set it into a narrative form, and what you can expect to experience during the process of writing.
