While you may already know much…

You may have hesitations and insecurities about one aspect of writing—let’s say, dialog—while you are confident and skilled in another—let’s say, staying motivated.

This is where The Memoir Writing Series is so useful.

  • You don’t want an A-to-Z book on memoir writing. (If you do, purchase Turning Memories Into Memoirs / A Handbook for Writing Lifestories now. It’s the classic in memoir writing—the granddaddy of most of the other memoir-writing books!)
  • You are not looking for an encyclopedic treatment of writing. You are a one-time and perhaps only-time writer.
  • You are looking for a specific solution to a specific problem:
    • should you start writing a book?
    • where to turn too to help you remember more?
    • how do you beat writer’s block?
    • what to do to write to the end so as to have a book in hand?

This is truly an inspirational book. What a wonderful guide that is helping me write my first memoir. Thank you,  Denis, for publishing such a helpful book.

Bob Wonnacott, memoir writer

I was impressed by Denis’s writing skill, knowledge, and all the bases he managed to cover in this short book concisely written and easy-to-follow.

Write to the End

What I love about all of Denis’s books is his emphasis on realistic goals and on concrete examples. He does not say, “You can do this in a weekend” which, of course, is what we all want to hear! He is encouraging, supportive, and yet invites the reader to understand what goes on behind our emotions that stalls us and then says, “Here are some guides to restart.”

I own two other books written by Denis Ledoux — Turning Memories into Memoirs and The Photo Scribe – so I was not surprised that Write to the End was full of helpful hints to kickstart me onto the road to completing a family history book I’ve let linger for much too long. I’ll leave it for readers to discover which of his techniques are most helpful to them, but I can truthfully say that many of them have been what I needed to get me back into the habit of writing. This time I’m committed to “write to the end.”

Writing Great Memory Lists 101

Denis’ book is divided into 4 types of distinct Memory Lists to use as writing prompts. What a great idea! Love it!

Shiloh, writer

I was looking for writing prompts to help me write my memoir and found Denis’ Writing Great Memory Lists 101 book a great help! Using memory lists as prompts helped me get back to writing.

Memory List Question Book 101

I just downloaded this book and already it has been incredibly valuable. I looked up the chapter “Hard Times” because I was stuck describing in my memoir a pivotal event in my life. The questions in that part were just what I needed! Delving into the other sections of this book has given me insight into how to tighten up my writing and also bring punch to some of my stories with which I was not happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Denis, for getting me back on track!

Memoir Writing 101

Denis is THE expert on memoir writing. With years of writing and teaching behind him, he has much experience and is more than willing to share. Memoir writers everywhere have the benefit of his experience in this book (and in many others). I recommend Memoir Writing 101 highly as well as his personal training.

Brenda Seekins

Denis Ledoux says it best, “Writers write because writing is what they have to do to get the work done!” He shows that writing itself is only part of the process and explains the purpose of pre-writing, the Memory List, and ‘lingering’ with your writing—and a lot more!
