Tuesday Tidbit: Holding your published memoir in your hands

Picture this: You’re holding your published memoir in your hands for the first time. Just imagine!

What emotions will race through your being?

What will the cover look like?

How will the pages smell?

Imagine opening the cover of your memoir.

Turning the pages.

Reading the words—your words.

How fantastic will that be?!

If you persevere
if you never give up, 
if you stick with it, 
your dream can come true:

You can publish your memoir.

And when you do, be sure to tell all of us here at SM 101.

That me, holding Grandma's Letters from Africa.


  1. Oh Linda, you remind me that I haven't done any work on my memoirs for a very long time. Lord willing I will be able to do so in the foreseeable future. I like the photo of you reading Grandma's Letters from Africa.

    1. Joyful Penny, I'm so glad to hear from you! You know what I'm going to say, don't you?! "Write your stories!" Or go over the vignettes you have written and polish them. You'll be surprised how easy it is to make revisions after you've set them aside for a while. Let me know if I can be of help. Blessings to you, dear one!
