Now that you’ve one, decided how your’re going to write your memoir, two, chose a specific aspect of your life to write about, and three, know the time frame you’re working with, it’s time for the next step in our 7 Tips to Start You Writing Your Memoir series.
Set aside a time for your writing and honor it no matter what! This can be a little difficult (but not impossible) if you have small children. Let everyone know that you are writing a book. The key word here is consistency. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have and honor a writing routine. Writing is not whimsical (based on whether you feel like or not). Writing is a daily routine (at the very least five days a week).
If you write at the same time every day for 30 days, at the end of the 30 days, you will have established a writing routine. A writing routine is a must for completing a project as large as writing a book.
