I'm writing a memoir. I have written about 12 k words, and I am getting into the flow. The only trouble is, I keep feeling compelled to write everything in a linear fashion, to stop me getting too confused. I'm worried that this is just going to be a boring, mundane list of 'then I did this, then I did that, oh yes, then that happened'. I started with just writing out pertinent episodes, but like I said, got confused by it jumping about all over the place. Any suggestions?
