You can write a memoir!
When you are facing a challenging undertaking, it is wise to seek help. If you were attempting to run a marathon, you would study up on the endeavor and be sure you are doing things right. Perhaps you would join a running club or a website that offers you a programmed course. You would talk to others who have run marathons and perhaps hire a trainer.
How about if you undertake to write a memoir? While some people do succeed at writing an interesting and meaningful memoir on their own, the fact is most people need both more technical expertise than they now have mastered and more sustained emotional support for the long effort they are committing to. Many first-time and only time writers find the task of writing a memoir—however urgent and compelling—to be somewhat daunting. Truth be told, writing your memoir can become rather tedious over the months of solitary effort that is required to ready your story for publication. It is a marathon of writing.
