Valuable Memoir-Writing Handbook, “Journey of Memoir,” Free on Amazon Kindle
On August 27th, 28th and 29th, memoirists can download the expertly-written guide, Journey of Memoir, for free on Kindle or any Kindle-enabled e-reader device.
In “Journey of Memoir—Three Stages of Memoir Writing” (She Writes Press, July 2013), Linda Joy Myers, the founder of the National Association of Memoir Writers and the author of three books on memoir, expertly guides memoirists from first chapter to publication.
“Journey of Memoir” is a memoir-writing course in a book. It is filled with lessons on how to write a great scene, the difference between freewriting and outlining—and why memoirists need both—timeline and turning point exercises to help create structure, tips on legal issues, and how to get published. Over 100 writing prompts help authors start, finish, and publish their memoir.
Memoirists are carrying the stories of personal history, stories passed on through generations, stories that give clues to our shared struggle of finding our way through life. There is currently a “memoir revolution” where personal stories are not only to be shared by the rich and famous, but written and shared by regular people about their lives. The “ordinary person” is valued and honored for the wisdom their stories contain. But it’s a big job to write a memoir, and everyone needs a map and guidebook. “Journey of Memoir” is that book.
Brooke Warner, author of “What’s Your Book”, says: “Memoir guru Linda Joy Myers packs a lot into this useful manual. This is more than a workbook full of exercises and prompts (although it has lots of them!). It’s a guide from a veteran who understands the complexity of the memoir journey, and an anchor that will keep you on track if ever you start to lose sight of your inspiration or end goal. If you’re writing a memoir, this workbook will become your new best friend.”
Linda Joy Myers, President of the National Association of Memoir Writers (www.namw.org), is also the author of “Don’t Call Me Mother—A Daughter’s Journey from Abandonment to Forgiveness” and “The Power of Memoir—How to Write Your Healing Story”. She co-teaches the program Write your Memoir in Six Months with Brooke Warner. She coaches writers, and offers teleseminars and workshops nationally.
