Answer
Dear Robert,
Thank you for your question. I gather that you are writing your memoir and that you have listed what happened, but now you want to flesh it out with  your take on the memories, etc. Right?
One really good book for downloading things from your mind onto paper is called, "Writing the Natural Way." You can find out more about the book by clicking on the book cover at my page for writers.

Writing the first draft is the hardest part of writing anything, so just have a stab at it. You can always edit and rewrite later. I recommend using a wire notebook and pen. Sometimes the pen can get things that a keyboard would miss.
I hope this helps,
Sincerely,
Nori
