    What an excellent advice! I can’t wait to try it out.
    I’m on my fourth round of editing, so this is such a timely post!

    Such a lot of excellent advice, Christine! I’ve heard and used many of these tactics, but I know I will come back to Memoirabilia again and again to actually read through the various links you’ve included. Thank you so much!

    This is one of the articles I’ve actually book marked here because I really want to be able to reference this as I write. Thank you very much for the advice!

      It is a brilliant piece Ian and you’re wise to bookmark it. With all the attention you give my podcasts, I know there is one member of my memoirabilia group that is truly serious about learning how to write memoir. Without your comments, I might be tempted to give up on the whole idea. Thanks for reminding me my work isn’t falling on deaf ears.
