Helping Writers to Rise and Thrive

Inspiration for Memoirists

Courage. Is there anything more important in writing memoir? (Yes, I hear your list, with voice leading the way, and truth and honesty its ring-bearers.) I’m going with courage first, though. Courage to tell your truth. Courage to believe in your story. Courage to find a story in all of those anecdotes. Courage to revise again and again and again until you get it right. Courage to share your evolution and transformation so that readers might better understand their own.

With this in mind, I offer some inspiration: the short film (just four minutes) “To day I Rise.”

Courage, friends. CD
