How to write your memoir or life story

Our lives are full of interesting people, relationships and events, so how do you begin to write about these experiences? Here are some useful life story writing tips that I’d like to share.

Chances are that we live miles apart - maybe we are on opposite sides of the world - but that's no problem as I work using video and the phone. Over zoom, skype or the phone we will have a few relaxed chats and get to know each other. I will talk you through the options. Then, I will set up a series of interviews where you will chat about important people, relationships and events in your life, and I will be an active listener, recording what you say and asking questions here and there to jog your memory. Afterwards, I will write your story as a flowing narrative, giving you plenty of opportunity to revise and refine what has been written. Or, if you've already written your story and need someone to look at it with fresh eyes and a professional perspective, I can improve the flow and readability of your script to ensure it is free of error, omission, inconsistency and repetition. 

I learn a lot about life doing this job, and often come away from a project all the wiser for doing it. Terry's book is no different, and I am delighted to have collaborated with him over the past six months to complete what is a very special project. Here is what Terry says about the experience. "I found Katarina a very professional lady. Well experienced, understanding and patient. The finished book reads as if I had written it, even though I didn't have to put pen to paper! I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Katarina as your partner for creating your life story in a book." For more reviews, please visit my FB page.
