A-Z Challenge: K is for…

Keep on walking

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.

Note: I love to read your comments, especially when they’re attached to the right post. Please remember the Comment link is at the top of this post.

Hi Miriam – I’ve just started reading all your posts in this A to Z challenge and thought that they’re all very well said and straight to the point. I’m looking forward to the rest of your posts this month!

No, it’s not. I suppose with a memoir there are the additional worries about revealing too much of yourself and about the possible reactions of people you’ve written about.

For some reason my browser isn’t allowing me to access the WordPress like button, so consider this a like. 🙂
And while it’s true in writing, sometimes we can apply the same message to life in general. As Dory would say, “Just keep swimming!”
