I participated in a workshop led by essayist Philip Lopate, and he noted (I'm paraphrasing) that the trouble with modern memoir is that it typically falls into one of two categories: angry confessional or victim needing to be healed.
With that in mind, here is my challenge. Write an essay. Or a blog post. Or a piece of memoir. Basically, get yourself a chunk of material that's all about you. Something meaningful, deep, hilarious, or in-process. Something you love.
Print out a hard copy (don't try to do this on the computer screen-it won't work), and circle all the instances you use "I," "Me," and "My" in your prose. Go line by line and circle them all.
Then ask yourself if this material is about you or about your reader.
Re-write without using "I," "Me," or "My" in your prose and watch how the phrasing comes alive in a multi-dimensional, sensory way.
Takeaway: As writers, it's not enough to detail our own experiences. We must make them relevant to our readers.
