✨WRITE YOUR MEMOIR IN 90 DAYS… ✨
📕 ARE YOU READY TO WRITE YOUR MEMOIR…? 📕
Do you have a story you’re aching to turn into a book, but you just don’t know where to begin?
If you’ve lived through something extraordinary that’s tugging at your heart to be turned into words on the page, the hardest thing is knowing where to start.
Where do you start the story, let alone a book, based on your experiences…? What do you include?
Perhaps you’ve started something but you got distracted by research, or worried what people will think of you, or whether or not you’re ‘allowed’ to mention certain things… memoir is a particularly personal genre of writing, and the confusion saw you putting aside this personal creative goal that just won’t let up.
A finished manuscript is a major accomplishment and a precious legacy.
And whether you want to be published or not, turning your experiences into a book is one of the most empowering and creatively fulfilling goals you can achieve.
Memoir is – loosely defined – a collection of memories.
It’s a very unique genre because it’s so personal. And by nature of calling up our past experiences, it can sometimes be traumatic. But did you
If your story is about something difficult or tough that you went through, you might think it’s a bad idea to go burrowing down the mine-shaft into your memories.
BUT did you know how empowering (and beneficial to your health!) it can be when you tell your story on the page?
Writing memoir is a deeply therapeutic tool, when it’s done right. As the author of your story, you choose the beginning and the ending and most importantly, you give your memories meaning. What could be more empowering than that?
WHAT WOULD IT FEEL LIKE TO FINISH YOUR STORY?
Can you imagine the liberation of holding that finished manuscript in your hands, feeling the fulfilment that comes from creative completion?
Even better, you have a new perspective on your personal story, and feel empowered and uplifted by the decisions you made and even seeing the characters and people who filled your story in new and enlightening ways?
One of the most powerful parts of writing a memoir is how it changes our self-perspective, and when you learn what makes your story so compelling, and what makes your choices and adventures so unique, you gain perspective and confidence in your individuality.
Imagine having the story to give your children or your descendants – or, if it’s your wish – to see it published as a beautiful book.
All of this is possible when you can find the most compelling way to tell your story, and a way to feel good in the process.
Your words are a gift, a legacy and a precious tool for inner transformation and change.
You can write your memoir in 90 days without the agony – let me show you how.
📖 INTRODUCING… 90 DAY MEMOIR 📖
90 Day Memoir is my 8-step process to get you writing your memoir (with the traditional 3 Act Story Structure) in just 90 days.
On your own it might take you 9 years – but with my step-by-step guidance, I can get you there in 90 days… and help you feel good in the process!
WHAT MAKES 90 DAY MEMOIR SO DIFFERENT?
90 Day Memoir isn’t like any other memoir course out there.
I don’t give you a series of vague writing prompts and leave you to write on anything and everything that pops into your head. I believe good storytelling follows certain conventions – so I guide you to write your memoir from the traditional 3 Act Structure and the 12-step Hero’s Journey. This way you write with purpose and power, and you see yourself – and your life – from a place of myth and magic!
In 90 day memoir I give you the complete 8-step process I used to write both my memoir drafts in less than three months (in a way that felt good!).
This 8-step process covers specific mindset tools and techniques I recommend you do before you write a single word on the page. I also guide you through the 3 Act Story Structure and character archetypes you’ll typically find in a true story, so you can start to see your experiences from a place of magic and myth.
I truly believe as soon as you get that first draft down, the real fun begins and you can start to polish and hone and finesse your story.
90 Day Memoir gets you to a finished first draft quicker than you could have dreamed.
Because I’m sure you’ve heard the saying – you can’t edit a blank page!
HERE’S HOW I GUIDE YOU THROUGH 90 DAY MEMOIR
- Comprehension: Learn the basics of the published memoir genre so you can lose self-doubt and confusion PLUS learn what’s most compelling in your personal story.
- Clarity: Understand your motivation and uncover the underlying theme or lesson of your story so you can write with ease and flow each time you hit the page
- Consistency: Set yourself an achievable writing goal and map it out with my template toolkits so you finish this draft in months, not years!
- Chronology: View your story with the framework of the traditional 3 Act story structure so you know where to begin, what goes into the middle, and how to make a stellar finish.
- Craft: Learn the most important techniques of telling true stories, to keep your readers turning the pages.
- Cub-Like Protection: Let’s make this pursuit enjoyable! Here I take you through the self-care techniques I always deploy when writing memoir, to take care of my work (and my mind!) in the memoir process.
- Conflict: Conflict is the engine of story – here you’ll learn how to write it without watering down the drama, understand the gifts of your ‘enemy’, and the lessons and growth from every challenge in your story.
- Completion: Stay serene even when you’ve hit the finish line of your memoir draft – follow my process to self-edit your manuscript with success!
Louisa, the course is fantastic! I’ve taken other writing courses before, but because I didn’t know the basics, I got a little left behind. This program covers everything.
I started with 5000 words and finished 90 Day Memoir with a complete first draft of my memoir. I think everyone should write their memoir! Louisa’s program got me further than anything I’ve tried before. Thank you!

My name is Louisa Deasey and I’ve had a lifelong passion for true stories.
In my 20+ career as a freelance and on-staff writer, editor and author I’ve written non-fiction for hundreds of national print and online publications, edited and ghost-written stories for major media and public figures, and sold two memoirs to traditional publishers. My latest memoir, A Letter From Paris, has been released on four continents and as an audio production from Blackstone. I’m currently working on my third, a dual memoir/biography based on a found manuscript – my late father’s memoir. My work on my father’s papers led to my teaching memoir, as I simply couldn’t find a step-by-step process to follow to tell a complex true story in book-length form.
Aside from reading and writing memoir, I’m a cat lover (rescue cats rule!), avid journaller, and keen Francophile.
I love the mechanics of storytelling, and I particularly love witnessing the empowerment and transformation that comes across when people learn how to see their experiences from the perspective of myth and magic. This is the power of memoir.

My 90 Day Memoir program is NOT for everyone, and I only want you to join if it’s a great fit! So, let’s save some time with a few pointers…

90 DAY MEMOIR IS NOT FOR YOU…

I finished my first draft within two weeks of working with Louisa. I cannot thank her enough! Merci from the bottom of my heart.
