As a memoir coach, I get lots of questions (and I LOVE them!). My goal is to empower writers, so here are the most common questions I get — as well as my honest responses.
Sounds like you’re doing all the right things (especially the self-compassion part!) and letting this process flow as it will. So glad you’re on this journey! I look forward to following your writing :)
Hi Cali. Thank you for reading. Hope you find a nugget or two of helpful info in there. I always find inspiration in YOUR newsletter.
Oh wonderful! Hope you let me know what resonates! ❤️
it is very valuable for me ! :) thank you for everything ! I need to read it again few times... :)
my best wishes
I am very early in my process (got back into writing March 2022), and am learning how and what I want to write about through trial and error. I call it finding my voice sometimes.
I had to get past feelings of desperation or time running out. Writing a memoir I am finding, is not a process that can be rushed--at least not for me. I feel like I am on a journey towards self-knowledge and personal growth and it will take as long as it takes. The important part for me right now is that I am doing something every single day to love towards my goal.
I very much appreciated your comments about not editing as one goes. Doing one thing at a time makes total sense and is way less crazy-making.
I saved this post to refer back to as I go. ;o)
Wow. This is so comprehensive. Thank you
Hi Christine, I read this over a few days ago. I will be reading again and looking at some of the sources you linked to. Thank you!
