You’re the Star of the Article!

Our Magazine-style Bio, the latest addition to our Writing Services, is very cool! This service offers a professionally written, magazine-style article about your life or any aspect of your life you choose as the focus. We can use information and stories you’ve already written up, supplemented by a phone or video-phone interview and any photos you want to include. If you have nothing in writing, we’ll craft the entire article from the phone interview.

The idea is to give you a focus piece that you can use according to your needs:

  • Include the link on your résumé to broaden potential employers’ view of your attributes.
  • Send it to your local news organizations, and they just might print it!
  • Post the link as part of a dating profile.
  • Print it out, frame each page and hang the framed pages on your office or home office wall.
  • Print out copies to place in binders and hand out to friends just for fun.
  • Incorporate the professionally written paragraphs into your own memoir.

The Magazine-style Bio is one of the many changes introduced with the Fall 2018 Write My Memoirs Relaunch. Find it by clicking on the Writing Services button at the top of the home page. You can be the next magazine profile star!

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!
