Rodeo #2: Memoir

The first contest is done and dusted and the second is out of the chute. This time Irene Waters is the Rodeo Leader and she has challenged writers with a memoir prompt, “She did it”. (I think she’s done it this time. I don’t think I can do it. :)) Pop on over to the Ranch for all the finer details.

“She Did It.”

Three little words can hold so much meaning and have so many stories that come to mind. For the memoir prompt “She Did It” write a true story or a BOTS (based on a true story) keeping in mind the tips on writing memoir.

        Me too. And I read some of Irene’s posts. I do find it extra difficult to stick in some dialogue in such a limited amount of words. I suspect no dialogue will take off brownie points, lol. 🙂

          I’m not sure about that, Debby. I think dialogue is just a suggestion, as is description, but I don’t know. You’re good at writing dialogue anyway. I’m sure you could slip some in so as not to penalise yourself.
          I haven’t even come up with an idea yet. I’d find it easier to write ‘She didn’t do it’ and maybe that’s how it will be this time. 🙂 😦
