Q: "How do you eat an elephant?"
A: "One bite at a time."
Well, that is how you approach writing a memoir…one bite at a time.
In order to accomplish such a grand project as this you need to break it down into achievable tasks, bite-size pieces. Learning how to write a memoir is easy when the steps are broken down this way.
We'll help you identify those pieces, but you will be the one doing the work. With creative writing prompts to trigger your memory, creative writing exercises to set you in motion, blog discussions to get answers to your questions and helpful writing tools and resources to tap into, writing your memoirs will not only be a doable venture but an enjoyable one as well.
Being able to read memoir samples and discussing them with their authors is a valuable learning tool. Then submitting your stories to be showcased in our Readers Circle will allow you the opportunity to receive feedback from others who are after the same things you are, telling your story.
But left alone with the goal to "write an autobiography" can be an overwhelming experience. If not prepared, the tremendous undertaking can stop you in your tracks. We will help you simplify the process and see success.
Your story is a precious commodity...it's unique and worth telling. The key thing to remember is do not bite off more than you can chew.
Having said that, let's proceed on How to Start Off Writing A Book.
