This is the 100th Write My Memoirs Blog!
As I sat down to blog today, as I do every Tuesday, I noticed that this is a milestone—number 100! As you reflect on your life in order to write your memoirs, maybe it’s time for us to reflect on the journey that we continue to take here at WriteMyMemoirs.com.
We use the blog to alert you to changes within the website, bring to your attention interesting memoirs by celebrities and others, link you to pertinent websites, provide grammar and writing tips and motivate you to start writing and stick with it! We blogged about a book that traced the history of the memoir writing tradition. We suggested you use your own annual holiday letters to build the foundation for your memoir. We followed up our discussion of the six-word memoir fad with an offer to help you publish a short book—not limited to six words, but up to 20 pages. And we urged you not to put off writing your story, because you can never be sure that your health, availability and resources will remain in place.
We appreciate all of you who read the blog, find us on Google, sign up and email us with your questions and comments. Currently we are planning changes to the website that we hope will make it easier than ever to be here, and we’re expanding our publishing options and writing help so that your memoir turns out exactly how you dream it will.

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!
