Memoir Example: Britney Spears



I wanted to share this article about Britney Spears writing her life story because it proves something that we've seen for a long time: Life story writing can be really therapeutic.

The article written by Hannah Yasharoff in USA Today and is attached below (Britney photo is by Chris Pizzello / Invision): 


All eyes have been on Britney Spears through her controversial, high-profile conservatorship battle. Now, the pop icon is telling her own story. 

Spears, 40, confirmed in an Instagram post Monday that she's writing a book. 

"Well, I'm writing a book at the moment and it's actually healing and therapeutic... it's also hard bringing up past events in my life," Spears wrote on Instagram. "I've never been able to express openly!!! I can only imagine that I do sound childish but I was extremely young with those events took place."

Spears did not mention a release date for the book or whether it had been picked up by a publisher.

The news comes almost three months after the arrival of her sister Jamie Lynn Spears' memoir, "Things I Should Have Said" about which Britney Spears was outspoken her disdain for several of the anecdotes her sister wrote about her. 

This will be Spears' first solo memoir –  she previously co-authored the 2000 autobiography "Britney Spears' Heart to Heart," and 2001 YA novel "A Mother's Gift" with her mother, Lynne Spears, both of which appeared on the USA TODAY Best-Selling books list.  

"I wanted to write this book so people could understand what a special bond we have between us and how much we've depended on each other over the years -- through good times and tough ones (and there have been some tough ones)," Spears wrote in an excerpt from "Heart to Heart." 

"I hope that in sharing our story we'll inspire mothers and daughters to open their hearts to one another. It would also be great to be able to encourage kids to follow their dreams and not to be scared to set high goals. I'm living proof that you can succeed, no matter where you're from or how little you have. My family didn't have a whole lot of 'things' when I was growing up, but we had one another."


The bold emphasis above is mine, and I added it because what Britney says there is exactly why we are in this business
