- Reaction score
I am taking a memoir class where we will be writing several personal essays and memoir pieces. We have been given a writing prompt for the first one. I realize there are two places I am struggling. The first is how to tell a whole mini-memoir in three pages. I have two and a half pages and it just doesn't read so much like a story as it does a reflection. My other problem is the ending. I don't want to just some up what I've said or state something obvious that the reader already gets from reading my piece. I think my problems with the ending relate back to my problems with not really having a story line. How do you guys work through problems like this? Any tips?
