Agent/Monday: In search of memorable memories
Anyway....today I thought I'd talk about memoirs. Though I am interested in defending memoirs, I have not found any yet. I' m looking for memoirs to remember. And then there are the "something extreme" memoirs. The meaning of the "no thank you" is that the write abilities are not powerful, that the memoirs are not interesting or that the readers are not addressed by the voices.
Hard as it may sound, an agents must consider the memoirs as a selling part. And finally, there is a kind of memoirs about the world. All too often I see a lot of folks trying to tell me their memoirs about everyday things, like having a little girl, going abroad to school, getting a diorce or raising a grumpy upbringing.
They may have been monuments for the author, but not extraordinary for the ordinary person, and if nothing out of the ordinary is published in the volume, memory is not of interest to the people. So, what can make this piece of art into some kind of memory? Unbelievable vocals, astonishing humour, keen spelling, captivating scrolling, extraordinary attitudes, if possible, things like that.... How about a memorandum about a young man and his canine?
You were yawning, right? Here is a piece of living memory that could have been a serious yawns, but the typing and the voices and the tempo and emotion are just right - something you should keep in your memory when you move forward with your own memoirs. It is important in plottering (yes, I said plot ting ) to give the memoirs a taut texture and to stay away from the pitfall that is to tell a true tale - that of chronological floating around regardless of what is most interesting.
Maintain a powerful storytelling theme, even when the essay is intertwined. Let the readers ask themselves: "Will she ever be able to try again xyz", as in the memoirs Saison to Key, where a budding cook gets into an injury and looses his capacity to smoke and tast?
So, what exactly am I looking for? Is this an example of a great memory? He has an unbelievable sound, thrilling toughness, extraordinary scenery, heartache - the whole ENCILADA.
