RemembeRED: Buy This Book!

Prompt:  Memoir can be intimidating for writers. You’re relating actual events, portraying real people, and there are years of material to sift through.  This week pretend we have a book contract here just waiting for someone to sign (and we wish we did, believe me!)  Pitch your memoir in 200 words or less and come back this Tuesday to link up.

It is the story of a woman who spent her childhood wandering, never fitting in.  She drifted through life, searching.  She found the right man, and together they battled the world, even through cancer.  She then risked everything, even death, to bring her son into the world.  Now she has everything she ever wanted, except for the vacation home on the coast of Spain.



  1. Sounds like a very strong woman.

  2. It sounds like a very compelling story!

  3. Very nice indeed! In terms on concrit, I think just a bit more detail would be excellent. For example, "together they battled the world, even through cancer" is good, but a short three words about what else in the world they took on would make me even happier.

    Either way, I would definitely read.

  4. I am busy catching up, and plan to start writing prompts again when I get back to MO. I would read this book too.

  5. I'm definitely intrigued!! When is it getting published?

  6. I like that you hit on big events both large and small. It lets us know there's so much more to your story.


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
