Kick Start Your Memoir - Skeletons & Dirty Linen
Week 1. Learning to let go
Using examples and exercises, you will discover how to let go of your natural inhibitions so you can free yourself to write creatively.
Week 2. Marinate your head with research
Information gathering can be both exciting and rewarding, and the more you discover, the richer your story will be. You will find how to maximise your research skills using specific techniques and resources.
Week 3. Use detail to tell it how it really was
Every scene should say ‘it happened like this’ instead ‘this is what happened.’ At any given moment our lives are determined by a myriad influences. ‘Am I feeling hot; are my feet aching; am I in a hurry; what am I hoping for; or what have I just lost?’
Week 4. Looking from the outside
The structure of any memoir writing project revolves around pivotal turning points linking the present to its past and future. Discover how to find the beginning, middle and end of your chapters as well as your story.
