A good writer is a voyeur crossed with an action figure. Yes, you watch, but you also have to get your hands dirty. To find a good story, you need to observe. Watch people, listen in on conversations, observe ducks on a pond and watch the grass grow...

The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson
“A man can live on his wits and his balls for only so long.”
Hunter S. Thompson
The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson
“Happy," I muttered, trying to pin the word down. But it is one of those words, like Love, that I have never quite understood. Most people who deal in words don’t have much faith in them and I am no exception – especially the big ones like Happy and Love and Honest and Strong. They are too elusive and far to relative when you compare them to sharp, mean little words like Punk and Cheap and Phony. I feel at home with these, because they’re scrawny and easy to pin, but the big ones are tough and it takes either a priest or a fool to use them with any confidence.”

As a memoir of a normal woman, it is excellent. The idea to use your mother's journals and then compare and correlate it with your own life story is brilliant. And in that context Then Again is great.
However, Diane Keaton is NOT a normal woman. She i
