November 3 Activity: Let go of having to write deathless prose on your first draft.
What you are accomplishing during November is Memoir Writing Month is getting the flow of your story down in a first draft.
Remember that perfect writing is the enemy of good writing.
Too many writers forego the pleasure of having a good memoir in favor of waiting for the perfect one. Perfectionism hides in many guises:
- “I don’t want to make a fool of myself, right?”
- “What’s the point of writing anything if I don’t get it right?”
Depending on whom you are aiming your memoir to, you will have to do more or less polishing. An audience of family and friends is not as demanding as an audience of literary strangers. But, whichever you aim for, let go of having to write deathless prose on your first draft.
