I just started reading a book on memoir writing called 7 Easy Steps to Memoir Writing(review coming soon).
I’ve only gotten through the first chapter so far but it already has me thinking.
The author Mary Anne Benedetto says the biggest problem people have with writing memoirs…is starting.
She says you just have to stop making excuses and commit to doing it.
I’m not sure how committed I am…but I’m thinking about doing one. Maybe as a regular series on this blog. Because reading some of what she said got me thinking about my grandmother and remembering some stories I was told.
Like the one about how she accidently poured finger nail polish remover on me when changeing my diaper…instead of baby oil. They told me I screamed to high heaven and scared her to death…they said it took a while before she could change a diaper again.
We always teased her that she ruined me for life with that finger nail polish remover.
Some things you don’t want to forget. Has anything like that ever happened to you? What stories do you tell you kids and grandkids?
