A-Z Challenge: J is for…


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.


I love this song, which is about the difficult journeys the Jews of Ethiopia undertook to reach Israel in the 1980s and ’90s.

Writing any book is a journey. Writing a memoir is a journey that’s likely to be full of emotion. As you travel through the episodes that make up the memoir, you discover and confront truths you hadn’t grasped before. You have to be prepared for the journey to change you.
