Writing My Memoir: organizing the facts of my life
Writing my memoir was an accomplishment that gave me a great sense of pride and joy, and one that I am glad I underwent. My memoir was easier to write than I thought it would be, and writing my life story helped with the healing of many traumatic events in my life. In this article, we will look at new memoirs and where to go to find a memoir publisher. I am glad I wrote my memoir, and you will be, too!
What are you going to write about?
Writing a memoir about your life can be difficult at first. Many people believe that they do not have anything worthwhile to write about. I thought that, too, when I started my memoir. However, once you start looking back at your life, you quickly will realize that you have probably had many memorable events happen to you. Sometimes the major events tend to fade into the past. Writing an online memoir is a great way to experience your fond memories in great detail.
My memoir got easier to write the more I wrote. For some, it helps to pick a starting point that is significant. Writing the memoir can be accomplished after thinking back through your life and the events you plan to write about. A personal memoir will bring you a sense of pride and accomplishment, just as my memoir did! Writing online memoirs can also be a great accomplishment for a couple to do together.
How I wrote my memoir
So what can you write memoirs about? Think back to the beginning of your life. Did you undergo any traumatic instances in your childhood, such as a life-threatening episode, a death in the family or a big move? You can write about the friends you have made during your life, especially the ones who became closest to you. Writing an online memoir may later serve as a valuable reference point from which you are your loved ones can draw.
Think about the tragedies you have lived through as well as the triumphs, marriages and divorces, births and deaths, vacations you have taken, embarrassing moments, natural disasters and historical events that happened in your time or anything else that held special meaning in your life.

What can you do with an online memoir?
So, you have written your personal memoir. Now, what do you do with it? If you choose to have it published, you can use copies of it for gifts. I used my memoir quite often as gifts for those “hard to buy for” relatives. A memoir is a wonderful gift to your family members, especially those that are elderly or who simply have everything. A memoir can be a great gift for your husband or wife to hold on to, or as gifts to your children and grandchildren. As morbid as it may sound, they will appreciate having your thoughts in writing if you pass on before them. Passing on the tradition of writing online memoirs serves as a way to keep your family history intact and stay close to your loved ones.
When you write a memoir you may either write it for personal use or actually get it published. If you publish it for the public, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that a memoir book you have written is available for sale, and you may make a profit on it as well.
