I had a lot of questions for others as I wrote my memoir. When people found out I was writing a memoir, they also had questions for me. Probably the number one question I asked others and others asked me was: How long does it take to write a memoir?
For me, it was a long time or maybe not so long depending on what I consider to be the actual start. I would guess anywhere from 10 to three years. There was a lot of pre-writing and thinking and a lot of writing that didn’t turn out to be part of the final manuscript.
I wrote about it in at Women Writing Memoir on Medium. You can check it out using the link below.
Did you write a memoir or other book? How long did it take you? And What about the next step, publishing? How long did that take?
