Product details...

Is it time to leave your legacy? Do you want to share your life story with your family to pass down from generation to generation? Do you need help remembering the details or organizing your memories into a structured book?

The Memoir Writing Kit from Outskirts Press offers 140 pages of memory-provoking questions to help inspire you. Simply answer the questions in complete sentences, remove the questions themselves, and your memoir practically writes itself!

The structure of the Memoir Writing Kit is roughly chronological, beginning with "The Dawn of Life" and ending with "The Sunset."  The years between are organized by similarly themed chapters, ranging from "Childhood Holidays and Celebrations"  to "Serving My Country" to "A Taste for Life." 

Everyone's life is different.  The beauty of the Memoir Writing Kit is that it is flexible enough and comprehensive enough to help any writer start and complete their memoirs, no matter what sort of life you have led.  If you were not in the military, simply delete the "Serving My Country" chapter.  If you played professional sports, simply add more details and anecdotes to the "Pastimes & Sports" chapter.

Chapters include:

  • The Dawn of Life
  • City, County, State, and Country
  • First Family
  • Childhood Friends and Events
  • Childhood Holidays and Celebrations
  • First Days of School
  • Serving My Country
  • College Days (and Nights)
  • Starting a Career
