Speak Your Memoirs

Speak Your Memoirs
Sometimes you sit down to write and nothing much comes out. I advise people who want to author their own memoirs to take it one anecdote at a time and thread it together later. But writing can be intimidating, and you may have trouble putting together your thoughts when faced with a blank screen. Maybe you’re not good at computers or word processing software but also can’t imagine writing out a whole book longhand. Or perhaps, like many people, you just can talk a lot easier than you can write.
Talking is a great option. We have some members here on WriteMyMemoirs who are telling their stories into audio recorders. Consider that as a solution for you if you have trouble with the writing process.
When you’re finished talking, you will likely have hours of your voice on a series of little audio tapes. What then? At the very least, you’ll have your story on record for other people to hear. You might want to make some copies and leave it at that, but with help you can get your autobiography on paper or publish it into a book. Perhaps a friend or relative can transcribe, edit and organize the work. WriteMyMemoirs offers that service, too. Just send us your tapes, and we’ll create the magic. There’s not just one route to getting your story into print, so don’t get frustrated if the writing process is difficult for you.
