A couple of weeks after the Memoir Writing Weekend, I am reflecting on what a difference it has made.
For a long while I have had a desire to share my story, I did not have a clue how or where to start. All I knew is that there was at least one story there to be told.
The workshops helped put everything into place, an approach and a structure, to get me started and put the words down.
Marnie’s encouragement during that weekend has given me the confidence to write. She has shown me that writing should be a natural process and to visualise the experiences I wish to share as scenes. As a first time writer, I am now well underway.
