Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
George Herbert ~ (3 April 1593 – 1 March 1633) was a Welsh poet, orator and priest.
The question often arises, “When should I start on my life story?” The answer is always the same. “Now.” It’s easy to procrastinate. I don’t have time. I don’t know where to start. First, I need to take a memoir writing course. I’ll begin after I get back from my holidays.
I agree with George Herbert. There’s never a “right time.” What’s important is to just start. Once you begin your life story you’ll soon discover what you need to craft your work.
