Writing Your Memoir?

Writing my memoir is something I’ve toyed with for years, but memory is a tricky thing. As I get older it’s become more like the childhood game, “Catch me if you can.”

It’s important to understand we’re not expected to recall every tiny detail of every event in our lives.  As one author notes, we’re not journalists reporting facts (if such a being still exist).  It’s about telling a story – our story. We want to share our experiences, pain, the lessons we’ve learned, or perhaps, to free ourselves of the stones weighing down our souls.

Whatever the reason for trying to get your memoir on paper,  there are resources to help. Because when it is all said and done, you want the finished product to shine, to resonant and move those people meant to read it.
