Speaking at the Metropolitan Club on Friday, November 9, I found the 10 women who attended eager and engaged in what I had to say about writing a book on family. Self-selected to hear my remarks, they had all thought of starting a book or some had started already.

 

As is so common, they asked: how do I start? Those who had already begun writing, wanted to know: Now that I’ve started and have all these pieces, what do I do with them? How do I put this together?

 

At the end of our hour, they were all eager to proceed.

I’m addressing two fascinating groups this month — The Metropolitan Club on November 9 and the Fisherman’s Wharf Rotary Club on November 15.
The Metropolitan Club, almost a century old, occupies a registered historic building near Union Square. It serves women with a variety of athletic facilities, library and dining room. My contact there, Claudia Feurey, has asked me to speak about writing about one’s family or one’s own life story at their monthly luncheon.

A much different group, the Fisherman’s Wharf Rotary Club,<"></a> holds a weekly breakfast at the Franciscan restaurant for business people and entrepreneurs. Club president Tresa Eyres whom I knew from Women in Consulting asked me to focus on writing about business and self-publishing.

These should be fun.
