MEMOIR! IS 2017 the YEAR YOU WILL WRITE YOURS?
IS 2017 the YEAR YOU WILL WRITE YOUR MEMOIR?
Memoirabilia presents a series of Podcasts of the book
Is 2017 the year…the year you will finally decide to embark on writing your memoir? I hope so. And with the series of podcasts I will bringing you over the next few weeks, months, I hope to be able to motivate you to write that memoir you’ve been itching to write but needed some help or encouragement to get started.
I mean, I know the feeling: you have a story to write, a story you think others would like or need to hear, but you’re just not sure if you can do it. You’ve got all these voices in your head constantly tossing objections at you and giving you reasons to not write that memoir. Well it’s time for all that to STOP!
I’m here to tell you you most certainly CAN write your memoir…that it’s not nearly as hard as you think. And what’s more, I hope to convince you you NEED to write your memoir because there are others out there waiting to read your story. YES, really!
And I hope by the time you’ve listened to several chapters of these podcasts, you’ll begin to see and believe that “Yes! I can too write a Memoir!” My book, “Don’t write Your MEmoir without ME!” was written for people like you, those sitting on the fence, procrastinating, talking yourself out of doing it instead of talking yourself into it. Did you know that procrastination is like paralysis for writers? It’s paralysis of the brain!
When it comes to writing, I’ve always believed if you can talk, you can write! The trouble is the minute some people think “I’m going to write a story, book, memoir”, they immediately think they have to write like all the famous writers out there. NEWSFLASH! When you write, (especially if it’s a memoir), the more you sound like someone talking with a friend, the more conversational your style, the more readers will relax with your writing and relate to what you’re sharing. How do I know this? You’re reading this aren’t you? And there’s nothing very schoolish or scholarly or bookish about this blog post!
That, by the way, is how my book, “Don’t Write Your MEmoir without ME!” is written: I wrote it in an easy, conversational style because I want you to enjoy reading it. And now, when you listen to the podcast at the top of this post, you’ll hear exactly what I mean. This series of podcasts are chapter by chapter podcasts of my book. Sorry if you hoped I’d be putting the transcript here. That would be giving my book away for free and I’m a self-published author who needs to sell her books.
But if you can’t afford to buy it (the digital versions in both Kindle and ePub are only $6.95 and available directly from my author’s website store) then turn up your speakers and take a listen to Chapter One of “Don’t Write Your MEmoir without ME!”. The podcast is only about 6 minutes long.
Do you deserve to spend 6 minutes of your busy day on yourself? I think so! Enjoy! And please, leave me some comments in the comment box below. Over and out. Ciao!
