—But You Can Do It!

Sometimes at the beginning of a workshop or of coaching relationship, people ask whether writing a memoir going to be hard.

Writing any long piece requires discipline and hours of commitment to the task. A memoir is no exception. You may have to learn skills you do not now possess.
