Tag Archives: Question on Writing

Another writing question. Looking for opinions.


I am writing a memoir. For those that aren’t sure what that is, it is a section of your life story, but not the whole story. Now I am starting from when I was a military wife and then planned on continuing to the divorce. So that would be my whole marriage. But the title is “Government Property – A Memoir of a Military Wife.” So now I am wondering if I should cut it down to just include the military years.  What do you think?

Are you a Writer? Poet? Can you help me with this?


I have been writing like crazy on my memoir. Still only posted the first three chapters so far though.

I have a problem that has brought me to a screeching halt, a problem that maybe some of you can relate to and give me some ideas on how to get through it. I have come to a halt as two of my chapters have become hopelessly entwined together.

Do I print out the offending chapters and try to renumber the scenes and then try to fix it on my Microsoft Word? Do I delete the whole thing and with the print out try to rewrite those two chapters? Should I try to outline from this point forward although the thought of that is not appealing at all?  Is there another option that I am missing here. I guess this is one of the things an outline would have resolved. I don’t outline, but work by the seat of my pants or I am a pantser as they call it.

I hope someone has some resolutions to this that might help me.
