I’m so pleased to be sharing my version of the journey of memoir writing at Nina Amir’s special blog to celebrate National Lifewriting Month! This is the month that memoir writers join the fiction folks over at NaNoWriMo to write as much as 50,000 words in 30 days. That is 6.5 pages a day. Can you do it? Are you willing to dedicate a couple of hours a day to see just how much you can write?

 

Tips for what we’ll call MemoirWriMo:

1. Write fast, let ‘er rip.

2. Feed your imagination with photos and research when you’re not writing.

3. Don’t worry about grammar, punctuation or details. Get the basics down.

4. No time for that inner critic either. Blow on by it!

When you have a few minutes, stop by Nina’s blog:  http://writenonfictioninnovember.com

And sign up for our Roundtable Discussion this Thursday with Nina and veteran memoir workshop leader Denis LeDoux.

See you there!
