November 9: Use journals in memoir writing.
When you learn to use journals in memoir writing, you will produce more accurate and detailed stories.
If you are fortunate enough to have recorded your life in a journal, you can use your entries to refresh your memory and get access to salient facts or verify what you remember.
If you have not recorded your life, there is still hope you! You can enter into the world of the unconscious and write “as if.”
The action steps below will help you to use journals in memoir writing and to write the best memoir possible.
