November 11: How to write about a conflict in your life; it belongs in your memoir.
Yesterday, I wrote about how a memoir needs to have a plot. There needs to be action in your story. There needs to be something happening. One way to explore plot that is to explore action. A conflict is by definition a conflict. Write about a time when there was a conflict in your life. Most conflicts involve a lot of action.
Today we write about a conflict in 3 to 5 pages about a time when you had difficulty with another person.
And don’t forget…
during November is Memoir Writing Month, the Memoir Start-up Package, a $111 bundle of ebooks, audios, and e-courses usually $69, is an extra 20% off.
We have helped many people whose lives demanded to be recorded but who themselves were not writers to create interesting and well-written memoirs.
We listen to you speak your story. We ask you a multitude of questions. Then we get to work writing. We come back to you with text and you make lots of corrective comments and we ask you a whole lot of new questions. Then, we go back to writing again.
Over time, your story develops into a memoir—one that you have shaped at every stage of the writing process.
We offer a free consult. Call today at 207-353-5454 to make an appointment.
