It can be tempting with memoir to think that you need to begin with the events that people would conventionally find the most impressive or traumatic. Yet, what is most important in memoir is not the facts alone, but what you think and feel about them – then and now. So a car accident or a wedding day, while they are conventionally considered significant events, may not be the most meaningful events to write about. It may be more useful to pay attention to the memories that still dig at your mind – for good or ill.

One great gift of writing is that it offers us the opportunity to manipulate time and space. Just as with the novelist, the creative nonfiction writer can condense, expand, fold back, reorder, and otherwise play with space and time. Flashbacks, foreshadowing, changing perspectives, changing the order in which events are told, are all fair game and may be effective dramatically and stylistically. In a piece of writing it may make sense to cover years in one sentence, or take pages to describe the detail of one crucial minute.
