The question I am asked most frequently is, “how do you remember so much detail and so many incidents that you have experienced?”
I respond that about two years before I started writing the book, I carried a day timer around with me every where I went. When I thought of an incident that I felt was “write worthy,” I jotted down a one line memory jogger because as you go through each day your memory brings up incidents that you have been involved with and then you lose them and can’t get them back. When I started to write the book, I had over 400 one line memory joggers of incidents that I thought were write worthy. I used about 2/3 of them.
