I understand how momentous an occasion it is to commit to writing your life journey. Most people have a tale to tell. Some choose to focus on a particular period of their history, others like to write their entire life story. Documenting your life’s events is a meaningful way to capture memories that will live on throughout generations. A wonderful legacy to leave for your loved ones, or a nugget of nostalgia to cherish for yourself.
When working so closely there is an inevitable bond that manifests between author and client which builds trust and makes the experience special and somewhat intimate. Some of the best stories are yet untold, just waiting for a blank page and a raconteur to help you navigate through the chapters.
I have ghost-written various books for clients. It’s always a deeply personal and bonding time, handled with the utmost sensitivity. I literally have people lives, thoughts and feelings at my fingertips, which is something I don’t take lightly. The writing journey itself can be a very cathartic and enjoyable. Whether you choose to tell your audience about that special part of your life that stands out in your memory, or the entire road trip, rest assured, it will an unforgettable experience.
Memoir isn’t the summary of a life; it’s a window into a life, very much like a photograph in its selective composition. It may look like a casual and even random calling up of bygone events. It’s not; it’s a deliberate construction.
