It is never too late to write your first book. I’m currently writing a school life memoir of around 40,000 words that will be published early next year. And my next book project is already simmering. You too can do it. All you need is to believe in yourself.
Childhood is a special time. The places we explored were important to growing up. My recent experience has shown that many childhood locations could be at risk of disappearing. Record your memories of these special places before it is too late.
Music is a powerful thing. In just a few notes, it can transport you to another time or bring up an overwhelming emotion. That power can be harnessed and used to improve writing.
To successfully write your life story or memoir you should return to places from your past. The physical experience of standing where you once stood and lived will trigger memories that you thought were long forgotten.
Bring your memoir or life stories alive by including the five senses and how you reacted to the important things in your past.
Setting plays an important part in memoir writing. Gather and record as much detail as you can before you start writing.
Memoir writing is not just for the rich and famous. Writing memoir is a way of recording every day incidents from the past.
