I took my time with this book, going back and forth to it throughout the writing process. While I was not writing a memoir, I found it helped me re-engage in writing during moments I felt particularly stubborn and inclined to resist lifting a finger. If you enjoyed Ann Lamott's Bird by Bird and are looking for for a similarly insightful, patient, and supportive read or resource, this is it.

Love this book as both the author Allan Hunter and his inspiration with his content promoted me to write my memoir!

Great manual for memoir writers. It was meant for older people and included a lot of exercises that I didnt do. But the stages of memoir writing he lists out are SPOT ON. So helpful to me right now. I would like to use this book as a reference as I continue to write. ...more

I'm a professor at Curry College. Massachusetts, and a counselor. My doctorate is from Oxford University, in English Literature, and I'm fascinated by literature and by the way it explores the deep structures of the psyche.
