“Disremembering and Then Remembering My Life” – Memoir video

The Carolina Book and Writer Conference has a video clip up now of my memoir presentation “Disremembering and Then Remembering Your Life” at their recent conference.

Human memory awakens and extinguishes at will.

This quote offers a good launching pad for why memoir wiriting is so educational and also so transformative. You can start writing a memoir and stop for a year, blocked by what you will have to reveal. Or you can stop as at a wall because you think you have forgotten. Well, of course, you have. But that doesn’t mean you can’t write a memoir. In this talk I give some tips for new writers and experienced ones, on the challenge of memoirs.

If you missed this year’s conference, all the videos are accessible with a one-year pass for juat $59. Loads of inspiration for writers.
