Thank you so much for sharing this! I am another hopeful memoir writer but I keep getting overwhelmed by the task. This is really helpful.

Angela E. Lackey

Great advice! I am currently working on my memoir about anorexia and my journey of recovery (not yet finished!) from what I think is a very different perspective.

The great thing is I get to work on it as part of my graduate studies, giving me the benefit of lots of free editors!


I am an editor for a Christian book publisher and had a contract from another publisher to write about my RECOVERY from anorexia and self-injury, and this blog entry is some of the best advice out there--it's even helpful to me, who's well into the process of writing my memoir (but has currently lost said contract and thus taken a break!). Thanks Aimee!
