Previously on this blog, I posted the first and second installments of "What It's Like to Write a Memoir." The original posts were written for Writers In The Storm and have since been updated. Today comes Part 3, "What It's Like to Write a Memoir: Different Ways To Revise Our Work." (In case you missed it, here’s Part 1 and here's Part 2.)
Somewhere along your memoir writing path, you probably asked yourself
“Why am I writing this?”
As an editor, I like to rephrase that question with:
What is your my goal in writing this?
What are you hoping to accomplish?
Who is this really for?
