The Memoir Project – A Thoroughly Non-Standardized Text For Writing & Life by Marion Roach-Smith
Rational and literary at the same time, this slim tome is an extremely helpful exploration of how to turn life into memoir — without boring the pants off the reader.
What I learned From It
A memoir is an illustration of a truth, a single facet of a life rather than a life story. Just because something happened doesn’t make it interesting. Narrow the focus, find your voice and write in scenes until you have a vomit draft. Then the real work begins.
