It has been said that everyone has a book inside of them waiting to come out.
Writers feel this compulsion more intensely than non-writers, but there comes a time when you might feel the urge to write is greater than the urge to hold the feelings and sentiments inside.
The process of creating a memoir is not always a linear journey. It is often a process which might take many years to complete. To simplify the process, you should know that there are many ways to begin writing a memoir. Taking a class or reading a book about the process is a good way to begin. For a kick start to the process and if time is a factor, try first writing the story of your life in the form of a poem.
The poetic form is succinct and to the point without the burden of superfluous words. It also will provide you with a sort of instant gratification. Begin by creating vivid images and details. You can also start with the title, ‘Let Me Tell You a Story,’ and see where it leads you. You might surprise yourself with your literary talents!
