Kickstart Your Memoir (Monday, Sept 9, 4pm PT/ 7pm ET)


All you writers know that encountering—not just writing—your memoir is a challenging business. I talk with a lot of writers who are eager to get started, and who are vibrating with the passion to get their story written, but they get stuck. Sometimes they get stuck before they have actually started! Others lose energy in what I call The Muddy Middle.

Brooke Warner and I, who have partnered for the Write Your Memoir in Six Months workshop, are offering free and short courses to help memoir writers get started, and/or revive their energy with a combination of inspiration and craft solutions to these kinds of memoir problems.



During this hour long presentation—a lively conversation of sharing knowledge as memoir experts, we will cover these topics, and also tell you about some short courses this fall that can give your memoir writing a great shot in the arm!

  • Common reasons writers abandon their memoirs and how to get your groove back
  • Strategies for how you can prioritize your writing and keep moving to “The End”!
  • Ways to confront what’s holding you back and techniques to help you find your voice and passion again
  • How to reconnect to the heart of your story and what moves you to write your story
  • How to assess what you don’t know that you need to know to write your memoir
  • 5 secrets for getting your memoir past the muddy middle

Get started with a memoir you’ve been meaning to write, or deepen your motivation to get your memoir done. Wherever you are, a webinar can give you the shot in the arm you need to move ahead with your story.
