A NaNoWriMo Contest at GeneaBloggers!
CLICK HERE TO ENTER
During National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), GeneaBloggers and The Accidental Genealogist want genealogists and family historians to consider writing their own life stories. What will you leave behind for your descendants to understand you and how you lived? And how do you write about others in your life as part of your own memoir?
Subtitled “How to Write about Yourself and Others with Honesty, Emotion, and Integrity”, The Truth of Memoir by Kerry Cohen covers the topic of how to write about others in a memoir. “. . . Cohen’s personal experiences make her highly qualified to write on this topic, as she is the author of the bestselling memoir Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity.
Memoir is unique in its power to injure others and most memoirists have had to struggle with the repercussions of writing about people in their lives, often in unflattering ways. How were they able to triumph over fear? The Truth of Memoir contains insight, advice and recounts from thirty memoirists on the topic of writing about others, from family members and friends to ex-lovers and children. This book will give writers the courage to tackle these topics without doubt or fear.”
