Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
On Tuesday February 14th, 2012, Atlanta Business RadioX™ Host Dr. Tim Morrison was joined in-studio by Dr. Shirley Garrett, author of A Tap Water Girl in a Bottled Water World and founder of Shirley Garrett, Inc., a speaking and consulting company that delivers workplace solutions and inspiration through keynotes, training, facilitation and coaching.
The interview focused on writing effective memoirs and personal histories rather than just creating a time line with some narrative: I was born . . . I grew up . . . I went to school. Shirley and Dr. Tim talked about the fact that many new writers think they have shared deeply when they really haven’t. Dr. Tim explains, “In Shirley’s book, Tap Water Girl, she provides a fascinating look into her life and shares fully and easily with the reader the variety of emotions she felt and experienced.”
Shirley notes, “All of us have stories and sharing the emotions is critical when we tell our stories. But what we tend to do is serve as a reporter telling of an event. When we do that, we usually show ourselves as a victim or someone being acted upon. We have to stand within the memory, stand with the story and declare, ‘This is who I am. I felt this!’”
