How will you tell your story?
Memoir writing is a popular way to preserve personal history.
When you write your life story you contribute a link to the chain of connection between the present and the past.
What’s stopping you?
No one would want to read about my boring life ...
There is no such thing as a boring life. I promise. The story of an ‘ordinary’ life is just as important and interesting as any other. The delight is in the detail: homes, gardens, hobbies and pets.
I can help you get to the heart of the story you want to tell.
It’s all too tangled and overwhelming ...
Very few lives are straightforward and neat. Tangles are more common than you think. Remember, this is your story. Told your way. Emphasise the aspects that are most important to you.
I can smooth your way and help you navigate the tangles.
I’m no good at writing ...
Lots of people love the idea of writing a personal history but find the blank page intimidating. It’s important that your memoir ‘sounds’ like you. Just begin. You might be surprised by what you discover.
I can work with you to polish the draft of your life story.
I want to write it myself, but I get distracted ...
Even with the best of intentions it can be difficult to carve out the time and commitment required to complete an autobiography. Set yourself realistic goals and celebrate small successes.
I can provide memoir mentoring to keep you accountable.
Your life story can be accompanied by photographs and printed as a book to share with your family and friends.
We can discuss the many options available for presenting your life story.
