Get a good start on your memoir during November Is Memoir Writing Month with this November 2 Activity.
November 2: Set time aside to do the writing. Schedule your writing.
You HAVE to show up for the work. Wishing you were writing or feeling bad that you’re not won’t get your memoir written. The more time you set aside the more you will write and the more likely you will be to meet your goal of writing a first draft of your memoir quickly—even in a so short a time as the one month November Is Memoir Writing Month.
More of this NIMWM Activity is available with the free My Memoir Education membership, please join now.
To schedule your writing, look into:
- your own rhythms. When do you most feel like writing?
- the time available to you in your day. Consider work, family, other obligations.
- external circumstances: availability of a writing space, outside disturbances, etc.
- a deadline by which you must or want to finish the memoir. This may require writing for longer periods than you might otherwise want.
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.
