I’m cleaning my house, and just found the notebooks with the original handwriting for the Memo-book. It was in 2004 and 2005, and I wrote it in old Norwegian. Later I rewrote the book about 12 times. Several times I got so tired of writing and rewriting, I almost gave up – became indifferent. But I sent it to a publisher, and then in January 2006 it was published.
I hoped that the book would sell good. But I did not expect that it would be such a success. And not at all that memory would become my daily work.
