I think memoir writing was a good experience. It helped me really dig down in my memories/ experiences and resurface or really think about my memories.  It also helped me with my writing especially with the help of people critiquing it. I used to write a lot of took a break when the activities of life started to catch up to me. So, taking a break and time to write something about what use to happen to you really helps calm you down. Memoir writing is something people should do some time in their life; helps you reflect a lot on yourself.
