I am almost through the final read-through of my memoir. A memoir that has taken ten years to write. Tomorrow I send it off to a literary agent to assess. I am telling myself that I will not be disappointed if the manuscript is criticised bluntly or if I am told to simply "forget about it". If there is too much to do to make it readable to anyone except me, I will accept that. If it is "just ok" but not publishable, I will print off three copies - one for me and one for my two children. Just to "have", but not necessarily to enjoy - or even read!
So that's the "state of play" with the great MEMOIR WRITE!
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
