    I have actually thought about writing a memoir but of course I have a lot of questions. This sounds like just the book to answer them. Thanks.

    Right now I'm reading mostly Christian selections, passages every day to keep me motivated. I like self help books and these would help me with writing my memoirs too. Deb

    Yes, I want to write my memoir. I want to write about my Mother and Father and what they accomplished and how they help me back then to handle the medical obstacles that I faced with. Without their strong presence in my life, I probably could not have faced the diagnosis that I have received. Having MS and so many other problems gives me all the time now to write.
    Thanks for the chance.

    Today I finished reading an ARC of NA novel BEAUTIFUL ADDICTIONS by Season Vining. Not my usual genre, but it held my interest. I hadn't really considered writing a memoir until I saw the book being promoted and then *ideas* began to form ....
