FINDING YOUR MOMENT OF DISCOVERY You understand the genre you’re working in, you’ve pulled out your key memory pieces, and you’ve determined what your memoir’s hook is going to be. Now you need to be sure you can place all of this material within a reasonable structure. How does a writer decide where to begin when a life story is so full of laughter, conversations, friendships, adventures, tragedies, and just day-to-day memories? Knowing how to literally begin telling a story is a huge challenge for any writer—whether your story begins the day you leapt out of an airplane, or whether your story starts more subtly, such as when you began to realize that your marriage was over.

A well-crafted memoir will encapsulate a specific story that fits somewhere within the larger framework of your life. This chapter is about building that framework, or setting the parameters, of your story. Thankfully, not all memoirs are written under such dark circumstances (although if you are an avid reader of memoirs, you know by now that a good number of them are), and the sudden and dramatic death of Didion’s husband provided an obvious beginning to her story. But do all memoirs have such clear starting and, for that matter, ending points?

She writes about her struggles with the disease as she’s starting out her medical career in her best-selling memoir An Unquiet Mind. ” A hook is that certain something that makes your book marketable. It’s an element that is utterly unique to your story. It is memorable, compelling, sometimes controversial, and appealing to the media. Jamison’s hook is poetic and ironic, while others may be tragic, inspiring, shocking, funny—or may feature a special setting, show off someone’s unusual ability, or demonstrate survival against all odds.
