Memoir Monday 

 

What is a memoir anyway? The memoir tries to capture certain highlights or meaningful moments in one’s past, often including a contemplation of the meaning of that event at the time of the writing of the memoir. The memoir explores an event or series of related events that remain lodged in memory, describes the events and then shows, either directly or indirectly, why they are significant — or in short, why you continue to remember them.
A memoir centers on a problem or focuses on a conflict and its resolution and on the understanding
of why and how the resolution is significant in your life.

Post your Memoir Monday post here. Be sure to pay attention to diction, syntax, punctuation (three colon uses and one parenthesis use), show not tell, zoom in on a particular moment.
