Writing a memoir might seem easy because you already know the story-after all, it's your own. But write a fascinating account of your life, you not only have to tell your tale compellingly, you also have to master plot, character, dialogue, theme, and the other essential elements of great writing. Packed with prompts, exercises, and inspirational examples to help you get your story out of your head and onto the page, this helpful guide shows you a better way to share your story. In it, you get: Tips for taking an inventory of your life and determining which parts are memoir-worthy; Advice on accurately remembering long-ago events and conversations; Exercises to help you find your voice, create believable dialogue, and craft a gripping plot; Guidance on defining your theme and analysing which genre your memoir fits; A look at your options for sharing your finished memoir: with family and friends, in writers' groups, or as a printed book.
