Write down the theme of your memoir as a question or an issue you want to explore.
– How was my family affected by the violence around us?
– Dealing with grief.
Note: The theme you choose for this assignment isn’t set in stone. Your idea of what your theme is might change as you work on your memoir. That’s fine. Writers often discover their theme as they write.

– Why am I “not good enough?”
– Emotionally unavailable parents

About GMoniz

I'm a 70 yr old beginner. I was a secretary for 43 years, so I feel comfortable with a keyboard. I've had a life filled with bumpy roads, but I've also experienced a lot of love and fun along the way. You've got to have a sense of humour to get you through the dark times. Over the past few years, I've started to write, and I find an escape to "the zone" (somewhat the same as I used to experience when painting.) I'm interested now in writing my memoirs, so I've decided to take this course. It will be interesting to see the writing of others in the process and I'm looking forward to it.
