Are you thinking of writing your memoir or have you already written it and are waiting to share it with others? The Magic of Memoir gives you the opportunity to read the stories of 38 writers who share their tips for dealing with the inner critic, practical strategies that provided motivation in the dark times, and lessons learned from mistakes made and overcome.
Also included are interviews with some high-profile memoirists such as Elizabeth Gilbert.
Each chapter offers the experience of a different writer who is willing to open their hearts and minds to us. It is very much like sitting down and sharing a cup of coffee or tea while drinking in the wisdom of one who has gone before us. Truthfully, the ideas shared apply to most types of writing so even if you don’t plan to write your memoir, there is plenty here to inspire your writer-self. The Magic of Memoir is certain to become a go-to book for writers and their mentors.
