i was wondering if i wrote a memoir about -this may sound crazy- the last summer when i lived during a war, and i mean a real war with booms and fear and everything, but now thank God there's so war anymore, but people are saying that there's going to be a war in june (in lebenon) it might be just a rumor or it may be true so prayers everyone!!! ( it makes me nervous)
so what do u think shall i write my experience or shall i not?!

Hi Dewpoint,

That sounds like a wonderful idea! The biggest piece of advice I have to give you is to just stay true to yourself and be as honest and matter-of-fact as you can. Tell your feelings truthfully, but try not to be melodramatic. Another member suggested that you read Anne Frank's diary - one of the things that makes her diary so powerful is the everyday tone in which she relates fearful events.

Best of luck with your memoir, and my prayers for your country and your people!
