Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don't stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just... start. ---Ijeoma Umebinyuo Just… start.
In addition to curated content on writing, marketing and publishing, I collect posts on the Civil Rights Era, as well as other facts and newsworthy information which you'll find in the "Black History" category. I hope you find this blog helpful in your memoir writing endeavors! ---Lynette
