About Memories into Memoir: The Mindsets and Mechanics Workbook by Marilyn L Davis:
For years, people have told you to write a book, you’ve got a great story to tell, and you could teach people something. But great stories don’t always translate into excellent memoirs.
Why is that?
Excellent memoirs take pre-planning before you start writing – even a draft.
A significant part of your pre-planning involves•Understanding why you are writing this book•Establishing positive mindsets•Creating emotional safety•Retrieving memories•Determining your theme•Choosing a point of view•Disclosing information about yourself and others as this workbook explains the mindsets and mechanics needed to write that remarkable memoir.
Worksheets help you review, reflect, and remember.
Plus, you’ll save yourself some of the problems I had when I wrote my memoir, Finding North: A Journey from Addict to Advocate. Now I can help you share your story with the world with this new book!
