On November 15, 2016, the Magic of Memoir was officially released. It is an honor and privilege to be included in this year's anthology.
When I began writing my memoir, many years ago, this kind of book was not available. Yet somehow, I managed to struggle through the process of finishing several drafts. Thankfully, today, writers of memoir have a rich well of knowledge available to them.
On difficult writing days, this anthology can be a memoir writer's best friend. It is filled with honest voices and inspiring stories. Pick it up when you need a little inspiration to keep going. Or if you ever find yourself wondering if your story is worth it?
The short answer is, yes, your story is worth it. But that's not as inspiring as the words you'll find in this anthology. I hope you'll read it, and that it will help you find your path on the memoir writing journey.
