Writing a Memoir

Earlier this month of August, I started working on a memoir of the early parts of my life. For some reason, I was under the impression that these are parts of my life, and this ought to be easy. Was I wrong!
I started to see themes that I had not thought of before; how the world around me influenced my life, even before turning twelve.  There are some areas I am not ready to explore further as yet and other parts that I will have to ask my older sister to help with some details.
I have about 7 000 words. I will attempt to take it up in about three weeks time or so. But  for now, I want to start working on a novella I had been planning for a few weeks.

From an early age, he has loved keeping journals; sometimes in note books but other times on little scraps of paper he could find when his diary was not close by. Over the years, he has explored writing psychological thrillers, suspense and fantasy stories. His mind and heart is fed by his love for creating excitement for his readers. He loves to play with the perceptions of human realities; the challenges and triumph of the human spirit. David is the first son to two Caribbean parents, with the influence of European and African heritage. He is married to a supportive and caring wife. At present, David holds a Masters of Arts degree in Psychology and works with children who have experienced trauma, abuse or mental disturbances. As he writes, he experiences the freedom that comes with knowing his readers are excited, happy and satisfied.
