Friends often beg me to write my memoir. I usually respond with something like, “there’s no resolution so why write it?” As I continue to work on this memoir I begin to see why it is important to finish it. It is not to write the best seller, gain notoriety or get rich. It is to leave something of myself behind and find the denouement within me.

Excellent point! I think writing is often the best way to figure out aspects or resolve issues to one’s life. Nice to meet you. 🙂
The French have so many good words that have a slight sarcastic tone, don’t you think? Your word denouement is one of them 🙂

It is the journey, not merely the destination.
I agree. Writing memoir is all about the journey.
That sound like an excellent reason to write a memoir. As long as there’s a story for you to tell then it’s more than worth it. Good luck with your writing in general and your A to Z challenge specifically.
Makes sense to me.
It’s great that you found your sense in what you’re doing. Keep it and have also fun writing it!

I never thought of that- finding a way to end it. I bet if you write it, the ending will come to you.
