Experiences come and go, trailing behind a string of memories, some fascinating, some ordinary, and everything in between. Reclaim those memories and turn them into stories you can share with others. Writing your memoir is not only about the past. It provides creative rewards now and in the future. The twenty eight steps in this book will teach you how to:
pull details and scenes out of the tangle of memories.
organize memories and shape them.
steer between truth and memory.
apply elements of story-telling.
cope with painful or awkward memories.
get started and keep going.
“Jerry is going to help a lot of folks open up and tell the amazing stories that are inside them waiting to be told. I highly recommend memoir programs to everyone –fiction and nonfiction writers…even poets. As writers we all need to look inward to our own experiences in order to make what we write as rich and real as possible.”
Jonathan Maberry, senior partner in the Writers Corner, USA, and Bram Stoker award winning author of the thriller “Ghost Road Blues.” www.jonathanmaberry.com
"My favorite argument for writing your own story is a quote attributed to Winston Churchill: "History will be kind to me for I intend to write it." That's the easy part. The hard part is made clearer and simpler in Jerry Waxler's well-organized and thoughtful self-study book. In bite-sized portions of advice and guidance, Waxler takes you through the process, beginning with giving yourself permission and advancing through all the stages of the process. Anyone thinking of putting down the bones–whether for posterity, notoriety, or therapy–will find much here to inspire, motivate, and validate."
