November 29 Activity: The introduction for a memoir can be pivotal.
Do not omit to write an Introduction to be placed before the first chapter of your book. The Introduction lets fly a hook to get the reader caught so s/he reads on. In a bookstore, the Introduction is often what the reader peruses. Online, the sample copy usually includes the Introduction.
When you write the Introduction for a memoir, be sure that the pages either pose a low-point (nadir) problem—how was I to extricate myself from this morass?—or offers a zenith of your experience—how did a girl from a small mill town in the American Rust Belt end up being CEO of the year in Inc Magazine?
