The One Day Memoir

You may have said to yourself time and time again: “I should write about my life.” But if you, like many people, have not been able to find the time or felt you did not know where to begin, this guide can solve your problem. By following the instructions and examples you can easily write a mini-memoir today—even if you have never written anything longer than a grocery list in your adult life.

You will simply write about three episodes in your life. You only need to write about an hour or so for each one. With these three chapters plus two short lists, you will provide your descendants with significant understanding and knowledge of you. Your mini-memoir will become a family treasure. (On top of that, you can take “write a memoir” off your Bucket List.)

If you find you want to write about more than three events in your life, you will find a list of life events in Chapter 8 to use for inspiration. No doubt you will have other ideas of your own.
