A-Z Challenge: Z is for…

Zzzz

Memoir Writing

This post is the last 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.

MemoirWriting-Sleeping

We’ve reached the end. But before you fall asleep, we have to go back to the beginning. Now that we’ve travelled through this journey of memoir writing, do we know what the beginning should be?

Well, no. We haven’t exactly written the memoir, just learned about the craft. But I think the beginning needs to reflect the theme of the memoir. It should also reflect a narrative voice, or possibly both (or all) narrative voices.

Thank you for reading my posts on the craft of memoir writing. If you’re about to embark on writing your memoir, I wish you luck.

Unfortunately, but excitingly, I probably won’t be able to respond to your comments before the beginning of May. But do please keep commenting. When the challenge is over, I will write a concluding post with a summary of all the advice you’ve been giving me. And don’t forget, the Comment link is at the top of this post.
