Your Seven Steps for Writing a Memoir
Oct 11, 2021 by Sarah Ray Schwarcz
People ask me how I wrote my memoir, Pearls and Knots. How did I start? How did I capture the memories and present it in a logical and appealing read?
I would say it's easy, but that would be lying. Writing a memoir, writing any book, takes serious effort and dedication from researching and writing the content… to marketing it so your book makes it into the hands of an audience like you.

Try Taking a Different Angle on an Event or Memory.
It also can deliver such a fantastic outcome too. That’s why I do it. Here are my seven easy (or, not so easy) steps for writing a memoir:
- Catch a Memory
- Write It Down
- Edit - Edit - Edit
- Share It Aloud
- Catch Another
- Write It as Memoir?
- Write It as Fiction?
