Memoir Writing

This post is one of 26 I am writing for the A-Z Challenge on the subject of writing a memoir. I’m not an expert in writing memoirs, but I’m exploring the topic with thoughts about writing one, and am happy to share the fruits of my exploration.


Inevitably, when you’ve written some of your memoir and have a lot still to go, your enthusiasm will wane. You will have doubts about where it’s all leading and whether it’s really going anywhere.

Linda Joy Myers and Brooke Warner call this the Muddy Middle.


And the advice? To keep going, of course. Persevere and eventually the sun will shine and you will find dry land.
