I’ve been cheating on the picture book.
I can’t stay away from my running memoir. It’s all I can think about. So I’m going with it for right now. So sue me.
This post will be short because I’m just here to share the following article on memoir writing by Annette Fix (The Break-Up Diet). When I found this piece, I wanted to hug it.
Drawing From Your Life to Create...Your Story
Also...I’m reading William Zinsser’s On Writing Well and really enjoying it. He illustrates his points with excerpts and examples from other writers. The book is broken up in easy-to-digest chapters, too, which makes it simple for me to pick it up when I have five minutes to read and then put it back down without losing my place. I’d recommend it for any type of non-fiction writing, from journalists to memoirists. Even fiction writers would take something away from it, I’m sure.
