Reality TV Paved the Way for Your Memoir

It used to be simple. There was fiction and there was nonfiction. Reality TV took off in the 90’s and so did memoir from “ordinary people”. The publication of Mary Karr’s memoir “The Liars’ Club” and Frank McCourt’s “Angela’s Ashes” in the mid-1990s had nonfiction bursting at the seams. So began the genre creative nonfiction. Now, as we launch into the 21st century post-pandemic era with TikTok and Social Media, you have a shot at telling stories and letting the reader decide what’s really real and what’s sort of real.
