Memoir writing

I remember being in the NAMI Mercer library and falling in love with the memoirs written by women who had a severe mental illness years ago before I took Memoir with Edi. I love the word memoir. Here I am in August of 2017 with 115 pages and a goal of having 60,000 words to be able to have a book length memoir. Even if I never get an offer from a publisher I’m going to write my memoir. I’ll do a first draft of how many ever pages 60,000 words comes out to and then I’ll tuck The Art Of Slow Writing and revise my memoir at least three times so I can have a book I can be proud of. I love Edi Giunta!
