Reader Feedback on CommuniCATE:
"I've enjoyed each of your psychology-based writing posts. They are an excellent resource to reflect back on my characters and how they've reacted / will react, and whether I've given them enough layers to make them feel real to readers - even when they don't feel real to themselves. Keep 'em coming!" Shelly Immel, Fiction Writer and Founder of The Big Life Project
"Cate, As a memoir writer, I have to be able to get back into my own head to convey the essence of the truth and reality of past experiences to make them real to the reader. These writing posts are valuable resources for any genre. Thank you!" Kathleen Pooler, Memoir Writer
The "Write Your Life Story" blog is part of a memoir project which is made possible by the generosity of four memoir writers and/or coaches.
Our goals are:
- To share memoir writing skills on a weekly basis via our posts, guest posts and re-blogs.
- To promote other quality memoir writing web sites.
- To build a supportive community where writers of all skill levels can be supported via Google Plus, our Facebook page and this blog.
- To pass on relevant publishing news and resources to memoir writers.
- Eventually, to build sufficient support to host an online, Memoir Writers Challenge.
All of the Memoir Project posts can be easily accessed by clicking on this link.
