Kick start your memoir
Come on a journey through the chapters of your life and discover the slice of life that you want to share.
Writing about your life is a way to make sense of your life, it helps you to heal and it is an amazing way to leave behind a legacy - your legacy.
You don't have to be famous to write a memoir, all you need to do is know that you have something powerful that you want to share - your truth,
Writing a memoir will take you on a healing journey. That will help you to heal and the reader to heal.
Your memoir is all about how you can help your reader.
Often you will not know where to start, which is why exploring your life through a series of memory joggers is so powerful.
And you may not even know which slice of life.
And so, my invitation is for you to come on a journey with your pen and journal and explore ten chapters of your life.

A Memoir is...
A memoir forces me to stop and remember carefully. It is an exercise in truth. In a memoir, I look at myself, my life, and the people I love the most in the mirror of the blank screen. In a memoir, feelings are more important than facts, and to write honestly, I have to confront my demons. - Isabel Allende
