I can’t possibly read every single book I want to read. But, there are some great books out there that I want to be sure you know about. So, until I get them all read, I will share about them in a Book Spotlight.
Have you ever wanted to share stories from your life? Do you keep a daily journal? Have you had an incident that completely changed your life? Do you have a knack for remembering details of your life? Did you learn a valuable life lesson that you want to share with others? Then you might just be interested in writing your memoir.
Has anyone ever told you, “You should write a book”? Everyone has a story to tell. This might be your chance to write your story. HOW TO WRITE A MEMOIR IN 30 DAYS will show you where to begin and give you the perfect framework for getting it out of your mind and onto paper.
The author gives you step-by-step instructions through a series of writing assignments including:
- crafting your three-sentence memoir
- identifying an incident that changed your life
- creating stirring scenes
By working through these steps, you will identify the major themes from your life. You will be able to combine your notes, journal entries, blog posts, and other writings into a dialogue with a plot. The book will assist you with lessons on spelling and grammar. You will also learn about the various publishing avenues to get your book published and noticed.
If you follow the simple directions and daily exercises that Temes suggests, in a month, you will have a memoir ready to submit for publishing.
