Are you a writer?
I’ve never considered myself one, yet I find great satisfaction in sharing what’s on my mind and heart. That’s why I blog. Yet, my blog has been on the boring side. I tend to write just the happy perfect stuff, which is limited in this place called life. Reading the book shared below, I applied it’s steps in what I want to share in my blog. I know have a sense of direction, instead of just writing bits and pieces that do no come together for a central theme or niche. The 30 day method is doable for a procrastinator with time restraints. You, the writer, are encouraged to write daily to create that perfect piece, or memoir, in 30 short days. This method makes writing even more enjoyable. I haven’t written mine yet, but I already have memoir ideas in a few areas of my life: marriage and it’s rocky beginning, parenting then and now, and a battle to keep a career I’ve had for nearly two decades. Now I just have to decide which one I want to write about first. The book also includes grammar and spelling tips throughout the book. I received this book from FSB Associates in exchange for my honest review. I’ve reviewed several of their books and have been pleased (and educated on interesting topics) so far!
