Tips For Writing A Memoir

Leave a comment

  1. Make it interesting – Just because it happened doesn’t mean it must be told. Remember that your memories will always mean more to you than to other people.
  2. Write your memoir in the first person – It’s about you after all. Using I, my, me, etc. is acceptable.
  3. Tell the bad – A perfect life is impossible. It is our faults and failings that bring us together and make life interesting.
  4. Be yourself – Try to stay as true to your own voice as possible.
  5. Distance yourself – This can help when writing about a traumatic experience, as well as helping you to see different perspectives of the event.
  6. Use fiction writing techniques – Show, don’t tell, build suspense, learn to write good dialogue, make your setting a character, etc. This will help keep your readers entertained and help to make them more invested in a story.
