Whether you are beginning your memoir or have almost finished with that first draft, I hope the links listed below provide you with useful memoir writing tips. These links appeared on the Internet in recent days.
With autumn in full swing, it feels like a time for starting or restarting our writing projects. After working on a draft of my memoir for the last decade, I found the information tucked behind these links helpful.
- From Marion Roach Smith, author of The Memoir Project, a podcast and transcript entitled “How to Report On Our Lives, With Marion Roach Smith and David Leite.”
- I follow Jess Lourey on Twitter and via her newsletter. Her latest newsletter contained an article on the question, “Memoir or Fiction?” Lourey’s opinions in the short article are based on the completion of her latest novel and what she felt when she typed “The End.”
- How to Write a Memoir: 7 Ways to Tell a Powerful Story, written by Brooke Warner and posted on The Write Life, shares not only tips but also examples of memoirs as inspiration.
- Heather Sellers on Memoir Writing offers an interview with author Heather Sellers and her process for writing her memoir, You Don’t Look Like Anyone Know. It is helpful to learn how another writer prepares for and then writes his/her story.
