I’ve read so many books on writing memoir and this one is so great!! Absolutely cannot day enough. I listened to this on audio and would really love a physical copy to buy, really hoping that is an option because it’s one I would refer to over and over again.

Encouragement to actually write that memoir you've got rattling around in your head. (And a very helpful, brief tutorial on the difference between an autobiography and a memior - and why we all probably could write SEVERAL memoirs over our lifetimes!)

This is a book I will refer back to again and again.

Lots of great tips. Almost wish I'd read this before I started my book. It's probably better suited for that. But this will certainly help me as I start making edits, which will likely involve moving around large chunks -- as well as cutting a bit. The exercises are pretty good, too. Especially the character exercises, which will help me add depth to the people I introduce, especially to help others get to know them as well as I did. ...more
Read this on a whim, she has a good system of focus for memoir writing and good advice. Not that I'm planning to. But who knows. ...more
