Family...

The off-beat uncle, glamorous gran, philosophical father, outrageous sibling, an infamous grandfather, scandalous cousin, mighty matriarch, inspirational mother, fun lovin' aunty, golf-lovin' grandpa, free-spirited granny, big-hearted brother, super-square sister, awesome offspring... Family! Many families have at least one "real character"...probably with a story well worth telling!? Perhaps, tales of one of your ancestors is still retold at family gatherings today? Well, it could be your time to put pen to paper...

Today, I voiced a promotion for a collaboration between BBC Radio Scotland and Scottish Book Trust, inviting you to write a short story about an incredible character in your family. The story can be based around a particular person or event, and it can be funny, sad, old or new. It could be broadcast or published in a book. Would you love a special family character to be given a place in written or broadcasting history? Find out more at www.bbc.co.uk/radioscotland/familylegends.
