"Memoir is memory, and to me, it’s…" Life Stories #46: @VLoustalot #ThisIsHowYouSayGoodbye @StMarti…

“Memoir is not an autobiography, it’s not your life story. Memoir is memory, and to me, it’s… If you’re writing a memoir, it’s a reflection on a period of time. Just that memory, just that time, nothing else. And it can’t be too raw. You have to be ready to talk about that memory, and I think sometimes people try to start memoirs before they’re really ready. I don’t think the memoir can do the work of the healing; I think you have to be well on your way to healing… or at least have sort of a solid foundation, that you’ve taken care of some of the superficial emotional heartache of the issue, because when you do sit down to write a memoir, it brings up all these other things that you never even considered.”
