I wrote a lengthy reply to Gayle to her question concerning my recent post, “Another Memoir Finished: What Was the Writing Process?”
She asked a legitimate question about whether A Sugary Frosting is really a memoir: “Can you call it a memoir when you embellish the writings of your wife and even added stories that she told but never wrote?”
To celebrate November is Memoir Writing Month, receive our daily:
- Memoir writing tips,

The celebration begins on October 31, so sign up today.
If you haven’t read her question in its entirety (much longer than I provide here) and my response, I hope you will as it addresses an important consideration in memoir writing.
Read the entire stream (the original post and the comments), here. (The comments are after the post.)
I hope you will pitch in with your comments, too. I don’t believe there is a definitive answer and your take might help us all to understand the issues.
