Periodization of life / chapter organization
Most memoir writers think of a life in terms of discrete periods – and accordingly structure the memoir in parts and chapters that correspond to these periods.
I’m no exception. To the right is a preliminary chapter outline. Actually, this is not the first time I’m thinking about my life course in chapters; I have looked back on my life now and then and structured it in periods (chapters) — see forthcoming for some of earlier periodization attempts.
