catnav-interviews-active-3Post #100 – Memoir Writing – Kendra Bonnett and Matilda Butler

What To Do When You Discover More of Your Story

Writing a memoir is a time-consuming and emotionally-draining experience. But rather than using those two points to put off writing, we’d like to explore them today in our conversation with Linda Joy Myers, founder of the National Association of Memoir Writers and author of Don’t Call Me Mother: A Daughter’s Journey from Abandonment to Forgiveness.

Acknowledging your story and writing about it is a healing process. Even sharing that story with others in a published memoir can be healing. But what’s next when you have to finally acknowledge that there are hidden parts of the story — probably hidden even from you — that finally surface?

Meet Linda Joy Myers as She Shares the What and Why Behind the Additional Truths Now Told in the Second Edition of Her Memoir

Linda Joy answers questions about the deeper truth that she needed to discover and confront. And she also addresses questions about multiple memoirs versus a second edition of a memoir.
