Writing a memoir can be a long and difficult experience. Some people succeed and some fail. What makes the difference between those who get a manuscript into print and those who cave in and only talk about writing?
There are many reasons that impel a writer to persevere, and if that’s you, I would like to know your reasons. Start by reviewing last e-newsletter’s article: Six Ways Writing Your Memoir Can Benefit and Motivate in the The Memoir Writer’s Blog.
I am looking for a story in the 300-500-word range that presents what keeps you writing day after day. If you send a piece in, understand you are giving me permission to publish it. I may do some editing of the piece, and if I do, I will return the story to you for your approval. I will publish accounts as they arrive–in publishable form. There is no start date nor (as of yet) any end date.
Send your story in via e-mail. In your email subject line write: motivation-to-write story and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
