Advice for Memoirists: No One Wants to Hear Your Whole Life Story
from The Writer
The bad news about memoir: Nobody wants to read your life story. The good news: That means you don’t have to write your life story. Once you start a memoir with the glorious moment you were born, planning to sail onward through early childhood and then into the turbulent waters of adolescence, you soon realize you’re not in a grand sea-faring craft but in a rather leaky lifeboat. On the high seas. And you’re trapped out there, uncertain which way to paddle.
