What It's Like to Write a Memoir (part 3)

Updated: Apr 13

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?
