Lynn Haney, (wife of John Trowbridge), author.  Lynn conducts writing workshops, encouraging journal writing, writing of memoires.  Lynn gave us at least 15 good reasons to either keep a journal or write our memoires.  ...commercial value...value to family....value to town history at library......rough patches such as cancer......and gave us a good quote from Napoleon "Fame may be fleeting but obscurity is forever".  She pointed out pitfalls such as revenge writing, interviewing family members, family secrets.  Think like a reporter, she advised.  Who? What? Why? Where? and When?
