Every book starts as a page…

Dear aspiring author: Stop sitting down to write your book, feeling overwhelmed, getting a few pages (or a few thousand words) in, sending it off for a critique (bad idea!) and giving up. Just stop!

If you’ve never written a book before, attempting a full manuscript without actually having a powerful and enjoyable daily writing routine in place is much like attempting to run a marathon when you can barely make it around the local park. You could stop midway through, collapse, injure yourself, or worse!
Perhaps you’ve been tinkering with the idea of writing a book for years, but you’re not even sure if you know, like or enjoy the memoir genre.
What so many people don’t realise is that memoir writing is actually incredibly therapeutic: both physically and psychologically!

Both my published books started as pages from my journals and ideas that I couldn’t let go. By learning to write about my experiences – and my life -through a daily memoir journalling practise, I could see my story objectively and uncover threads and themes I later wove into my books. 

Memoir journalling helps you become a better storyteller AND develop precious self-awareness skills.


  • Waking up excited to get to your journal with your coffee because your daily practise is so profound and inspirational!

  • Having 10 – 15 000 handwritten words you could develop into your book-length memoir (not having to start from a blank screen!)

  • Having the skills and techniques to conquer writer’s block – in fact, after each writing session you’re bursting with new story threads and ideas 

  • Having developed your writing craft without worrying about anyone’s feedback

  • Knowing yourself (and your story) more profoundly, growing in empathy, understanding and appreciation of your internal story

  • Understanding the key elements & archetypes of story structure used in Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey and the work of Carl Jung

  • Actively scripting your future via creative visualisation techniques

  • Seeing yourself as a hero on an extraordinary journey, and that journey is your life!

  • Re-reading some of your work and feeling amazed and inspired by your own insights!


Journalling for Memoir gives you the tools to establish a daily writing practise where you see yourself – and your personal story – with the power of myth, magic, and mindfulness.


  • Full (and immediate!) access to the 5-module program

  • Thirty daily emails with focus prompts and story ideas for your morning practise

  • Mindful Memoir Masterclass where you learn the 3 steps to journal for memoir to experience all the benefits

  • Thirty daily step-by-step lessons that teach you exactly how and what to write in your daily journal. This comes in a downloadable, beautifully-designed booklet so you can take the course over as many times as you like (and many students do!)

  • Mood-boosting focus prompts for when you really only have 15 minutes or less to re-frame an experience (this is powerful for challenging times!)

  • Guidance on developing your journals into a book: A video class, 5-step Checklist & Secrets of Bestselling Memoirs

  • Exclusive invitation to VIP FB group (with extra videos and bonus resources)

  • BONUS MODULE: The Hero’s Journey & Your Story
    Discover how an author uses the 12-stage framework to turn a personal story into a book with this masterclass & bonus material from my 90 Day Memoir™ program. 

  • Lifetime access to all downloadable content

I created this program for seasoned writers and complete beginners who want to get started with the craft of memoir and truly understand their personal stories.

You see, it’s great to have ambitions for books and big ideas, but in my experience, it’s the daily routine that brings forth the treasures hiding in our subconscious. Part of the journey of writing a book is stripping back the veil on what you want people to see versus the real story. 

Journalling for memoir helps you get to the heart of your story because you’re ONLY writing for yourself. Giving yourself permission to ‘just write’ with the power of guided reflection tools and techniques helps you look at your story with fresh perspective, too.

And once you learn to write “without your mask” and stop editing your words, you find your voice, find your flow, and uncover the true adventure that is your unique story.

When I first started the course I didn’t really know what I wanted to write… this course helped me realise that I was leaning towards a memoir all the time, I just didn’t know it.
The best thing about the course was that all the prompts were on topics that had been buzzing around in my head for years, if not decades, and it gave me the spur I needed  to put them down on paper. It gave me a much-needed foundation to build on.
I did every one of the prompts that you sent… I wrote around 22,500 words in the 30 days. This blew my mind!

Louisa Deasey is one of the best teachers around, an absolute master in the process, craft and publication of memoir. Writers would do well to stumble upon her courses at the beginning of their journey!
Alice Lundy
I’m learning so much in this memoir journalling course and enjoying it so much. It really has been life-changing for me. I’ve taken other online courses and this is the only one I’ve stuck with and really love. I look forward to getting up in the morning and doing my writing with coffee and cat. This is one of the best courses I’ve ever done!
Mary Mc Clary
I just had to say thank you for the journalling course, this is the second time I’ve done the course and it’s like doing a new course each time. The prompts have helped me reflect on what is happening in my life at this time. I was resistant to doing some of the exercises but once i sat down and started writing, I’m so glad that I did as i now have insight that I didn’t have previously. Thank you for the gift that is this course!

BEFORE Journalling for Memoir
  • You write occasionally but it takes you a long time to get ‘into the groove’ 

  • You want to write a book but don’t know if it’s memoir

  • You fear time spent writing in your journal would be better spent on ‘proper’ writing: ie. a book

  • You get stuck and frustrated with writer’s block

  • You may have had fiction or non-fiction published before but you don’t know where to begin with personal storytelling

AFTER Journalling for Memoir
  • You write every single day (and miss it, when you don’t!)

  • You don’t need or want feedback because you love the process

  • You’re closer to what you want to write about in your memoir

  • You have 10 000 – 20 000 words (or more!) to pull from for your book

  • You feel excited & enriched by the fresh insights and observations you have on your personal experiences

I was hesitant at first, it was time I thought I should spend on my actual memoir, but after 30 days of memoir journalling, I found not only had I established a productive morning routine, I also had a journal of writing I want to include in my actual memoir. The memoir-specific prompts were as interesting as they were relevant. That was thirty days well spent!

You can complete the course lessons from the comfort of your couch or kitchen table, as long as you have an Internet connection! The entire program is completely digital so you can access it from anywhere through our private course portal. And you’ll never miss a beat: you can go at your own pace and do the lessons on your schedule.


Research shows it takes 21 days to form a habit which is why I’ve given you daily guidance for the first 30 days of your practise so you NEVER sit down and wonder what to write. With the extra tools (workbooks, classes and trainings) and bonus guides, you can take the program and over and gain new insights (and write fresh material) every time you do it.

Remember, this isn’t a once-off program, you’re developing a daily practise with proven benefits for life!

As an absolute minimum, if you devote 15 minutes a day to writing, you will have thousands of words by the end of a month. But when you see the course material and learn the techniques, you won’t want to stop at 15 minutes!


Enrol now and in thirty days you could have

  • From 5000 to 20 000 words of your book on the page
  • A new understanding of your life and experiences that is truly transformational
  • A daily practise that helps you relieve stress, develop your creative writing skills, and feel more confident in your ability to meet your writing goals!
  • The building blocks for a book-length memoir and the understanding of key fundamentals when it comes to personal storytelling

I’ve taken the guesswork out so you literally sit down at your notebook, open up the guide and write. Six months from now you’ll wish you’d started today!

The course gave me a big shift back to being a ‘writer’, and getting back to the fundamentals. I averaged 5-6 pages every day… (but) one daily prompt brought 16 pages out of me.

  • You find yourself wishing you had a writing routine that gave you more confidence in the craft

  • You’d love to turn your experiences into a book some day

  • You want perspective and objectivity on your internal narrative

  • You just want someone to tell you what to write, and when, and how, so you can have a daily routine


  • You want someone to read your personal writing

  • You want to write fiction

  • You’re afraid to reflect or really look into your life and experiences

  • You’re physically unable to write with paper and pen (it’s a digital course but I guide you to journal the old-fashioned way: in a paper diary!)

Loved the journalling course. Am now in a daily habit. When I started the program, I was journalling every so often. Now, if I don’t journal every day, I miss it. It’s like runners’ high. I crave the rush of ideas and the words that come out when I show up. One of the best things about the program was thinking about structure and writing in a way that truth flows out, which is always compelling. Thanks again for pouring something special into this program. I’ve tried online writing prompts before but nothing stuck like this program.
Eda Utku
I really loved the course. All of your writing prompts were so relevant and thought-provoking. I looked forward to reading each day’s material and it has pushed me to finish my book. Writing was missing from my life for a few years, and this inspired me to get back to it!

Q: How long do I need to set aside to journal each day with the program?

Q: What is the difference between Journalling for Memoir and 90 Day Memoir
A: Where journalling for memoir is designed to get you writing every day in a way you can develop into a memoir, 90 Day Memoir is a much more comprehensive memoir mastery program (with over 24 modules around genre, structure, revision and craft) designed to take you from half-written draft to a polished manuscript.

A: Because my programs are digital and you get access to all my digital content within minutes of signing up, I don’t offer a refund. You can read the full policy here.


I wouldn’t be a published author without my journalling practise. For twenty years I worked as a writer, editor, twice-published author, and created three digital memoir writing programs. I’m a passionate diarist and advocate of all the gifts personal storytelling can bring. In 2010 my first memoir, Love & Other U-Turns, was published by Allen and Unwin.  In 2018, my second memoir, A Letter From Paris, was published by Scribe.  My journals guided me through writing both memoirs and navigating umpteen life challenges, thousands of published articles, and an enormous amount of personal growth. Before you get published, you need to start writing, for nobody else but you.
