Ep.54 Ten Million Words and a Lifetime of Experience w/ Charley Kempthorne

Today’s conversation is with Charley Kempthorne. I heard about Charley recently after reading an article about him in the Wall Street Journal. My Mom cut it out of the newspaper and gave it to me, the title was “The Power of Daily Writing in a Journal”.

Charley has been keeping a journal for 52 years and by rough calculations he has written about 10 million words. He currently writes about 1 million words a year. He now helps senior citizens recall and record their life experience by sharing the power of journaling.
