Many writers have a memoir sitting in the back of their heads; they leave their personal stories packed neatly in the boxes of their minds to be unpacked someday. The drive to pass on our knowledge is a strong one that many people identify with, especially as they age.
For people who write occasionally, or who do not consider themselves to be writers at all, there is a keen interest in collecting personal stories to share with future generations. Everyday people—farmers, accountants, and furniture salespeople—all have stories to tell. Where were they born? How well did they get along with people? What inspired them? What were their hobbies? What did they value?
We all have a story to tell—practiced writers and non-writers alike. Our stories are what make us who we are, because they help us to define our experiences through the lenses we use to process our adventures. Everyone has stories to share, and now is the time to start writing your memoir.
