Memoirs are a great way of writing your family history, or even writing about a fascinating period of your life or showing what your real life was like. However, they can become inward-looking and dry.
An autobiography is generally a chronological telling of a life, including family life and childhood remembrances. A memoir is a more specific timeline. For example, the story of someone's home, school and adult life would be an autobiography; the reminiscences of a Member of Parliament, for instance, would be a memoir.
We will help you find the narrative thread on which the story can be built. It will create a strong core to your story, carrying your readers through your life, or that of someone close to you.
This "narrative thread" is important, and can transform your life story from a dull list of anecdotes to an engaging and enjoyable life story.
