Memoir Coaching as a Holiday Gift

Book with a bow on it

You probably have that one person in your family, or a friend, who has always wanted to write a memoir. The person talks about it and maybe even starts by typing out Chapter 1 on a blank page. But that may be as far as it goes.

If you’re wondering what to give that person for the holidays, consider the gift of memoir coaching. Write My Memoirs will do the hand-holding so you don’t have to! But we do it with structure and expertise. We know how to motivate people out of their “writer’s block” mindset.

A lot of this has to do with confidence that the work will result in an actual book. With a coach, the memoir hopeful is less likely to quit. Our coaches assign writing tasks and advise about deadlines. Being accountable to someone, especially to a professional, keeps the writing flowing. And then our editing and publishing services give the person peace of mind that a quality book will get printed without having to go looking anywhere else.

Please visit our services page to see the packages we offer. Book a package or service, and then fill out our Contact Us form to mention this blog post for a 20% discount on all services booked throughout the rest of 2022 for work to begin in January 2023.

Think about the person in your life who wants to write a memoir. What better gift can you give that loved one than fulfillment of a dream?

Then just set up a chapter and start writing your memoir. Don’t worry about rules. There are no rules to writing your memoir; there are only trends. These trends are based on techniques and features identified in current top-selling memoirs. At best, they’re the flavor of the month. If you’re capturing your life in print for your family, for your own gratification or to inspire readers, rather than aiming to set off Hollywood screenplay bidding wars, these trends don’t even apply to you. You’ll write the memoir that suits you best, and it will be timeless, not trend-driven.There are no rules, but there are four steps:

1. Theme/framework
2. Writing
3. Editing/polishing
4. Self-publishing

You’ve researched this, too, and you’ve been shocked at the price for getting help with any one of those steps, much less all four. That’s because most memoir sites promise to commercialize your work. They’ll follow a formula based on current memoir trends, because they want to convince you that they can turn your memoir into a best-seller. These sites overwhelm you with unnecessary information not to help you, the memoir author, but to address Search Engine Optimization (SEO) algorithms so they can sell more.

That’s not what we do at Write My Memoirs. Our small community of coaches, writers and editors are every bit as skilled as any you’ll find, and we charge appropriately for their expertise and the time they’ll spend helping you craft a compelling, enjoyable read. But you won’t pay an upcharge for other websites’ commercialization, the marketing that follows, and the pages of intimidating “advice.” You can sell your book if you like—we have ISBNs available for you—but our organic process of capturing your story takes a noncommercial path.

If you want help with any or all of the four steps above, choose from our services or save money by selecting one of our packages. If you’d like to talk about what’s right for you, schedule a call. One year from now, you can be holding your published memoir in your hand. And at that point, it will be a big deal!
