    Readers of my fostering memoirs often email me to say they laughed and cried openly while reading my books, as though they were in the room with me, feeling what I felt. Just as diary writing can be cathartic, so too can writing your memoir. However, if you intend to publish and you refer to others in your book then again you will need to be mindful of the laws relating to libel. I say more of this later in the second part of this book on publishing your work. For now, let’s get down to the business of writing your memoir.

    The simple answer is that you write because you want to; because you have a compulsion, a desire – often a burning desire – to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences through writing. It’s like an itch that won’t go away and will only be relieved when you put pen to paper or start typing. If you are thinking of writing to make a fortune, forget it. While top journalists and a few bestselling authors make a good living – with a lot of hard graft – from their writing, the majority do not. Less than 1 per cent of published authors earn the minimum wage; that is, enough to live on.

    Once you have started writing, keep going until the words stop and then finish for the day. You can check your work, but don’t try to force any more words from your imagination. That rush of creativity is always limited and if you try and force it to go further you’ll achieve little and may lose faith in what you have written. , but I do not attempt any more of that creative first draft. I imagine the process of creative writing as having a basket full of words and once that basket is empty I have to wait until the following morning for it to be replenished.
