Writing memoir is a profound way to begin to understand oneself. It unleashes the power to move into personal space, leaving room for a liberated place of being. Tapping memory and learning to write with honesty has the power to move people and change awareness. People new to writing will find the writing process demystified, and professional authors will encounter abundant food for thought and innovative techniques to get their creative juices flowing.
Praise for Henriksen’s work and book by Patricia V. Davis, bestselling author, “As caring a writer as she is a daughter, mother, author and speaker, Lynn Henriksen has developed a matchless method to help every daughter and son keep their recollections of mother vivid and fresh through Writing the Mother Memoir. Her brilliant technique, explained in clear and compassionate terms and alive with true stories, is simple to follow even if one is not a writer by trade. I highly recommend this guidebook.”
Praise for the book by H. David Watts, M.D., bestselling author—“Memoir is tricky business. It requires allegiance to the truth and, at the same time, the ability to craft a compelling story. Questions arise: How to access memory? What is important? What about sequencing? Where is the borderline of fiction? Through TellTale Souls Writing…, Lynn Henriksen dissects the idea of memoir into its many invisible parts and shows us a framework for making it all come together. She gives activities, prompts, examples and if we worry the process is becoming too mechanical, passes along advice as to how to go about accessing the deepest spiritual truths. In the end, and with her guidance, we might not only make literature out of memory but be blessed with unexpected enrichments of spirit.”
