Add Depth To Your Memoir

It’s time to add depth to your memoir.

Here are links to five information-packed articles that are sure to make you think more deeply about your writing—and help you in the important task of re-writing your stories and vignettes so that they form a more coherent and meaningful whole.

1. Holding Back the Truth in Your Memoir
The post will challenge you to be more open about your story. A memoir needs to demonstrate courage. Is yours?

2. Better Than Writing Prompts – Five Tips for Creating a Memory List
Writing prompts are a write-by-numbers gimmick. Do you know what is better for writing from the inside out than using a writing  prompt?  Click above to find out.

3. An Important Memoir-Writing Tool: Life Phases
This one organizes—and deepens your memoir—in a dynamic way. Forget about starting with an outline.

4. Avoid Clichés and Stereotypes
Perhaps I should have added to the above  title: “like the plague.” But, that would have been a cliché, wouldn’t it! Clichés and stereotypes are guarantees for superficial writing.

5. Use an Archetype of Your Experience to Revive Your Memoir.
I love archetypes. They explain so much of what we are and do. No skimming the surface here. Archetypes are depth big-time.

Whatever you do today, write a few pages of your memoir.
