Life Stories

Another one of my projects. This one is in redrafting phase. You can follow the journey at my Follow the Crow Song blog.

If you have any suggestions of great memoirs to read please let me know.

I am working on a memoir.
 
I am pleased to say that it is progressing, at last, due to the invaluable feedback from beta readers on the latest draft.
 
Right now I am writing a detailed outline and selecting poetry to open the chapters.
 
It is so much fun to gather all the memories together ready to select the ones I think readers will gain or be the most moved by reading. My goal is to select around 25 scenes from this outline to build the memoir.
 
Looking at the nearly 7000 word outline I am beginning to realise I might have to write two books or a book and several articles or stories.
 
Some of the pieces here are first drafts, fragments, memory flashbacks, and meditations.
 
I use them as a resource for constructing longer pieces that may be included in the memoirs or creative non-fiction articles. Some of them have been blogged at ABC Open 500 words and other places too.
 
I ask only that readers respect my copyright and if they feel moved leave genuine and sincere feedback.
