When telling your life story and getting it written down, you don’t have to follow a straight year-by-year account. Instead, it can be very helpful and enjoyable to create a timeline of your life based on the places you have lived.
Begin with remembering your homes. Think about the house you grew up in, or the first house you owned. What memories come to mind? The places you’ve lived often invoke a wealth of visual memories and long-forgotten stories that are tied to those places.
