Description

A fill-in book from the San Francisco Writers' Grotto, authors of the bestselling 642 Things series



Focus on a single aspect of the craft of writing with help from the San Francisco Writers' Grotto. Writing Memoir starts with a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims, who offers pointers for crafting a compelling narrative from your own experiences. The rest of the book consists of prompts and space to write, providing opportunities to reframe aspects of your life in thoughtful and interesting ways. Among other ideas, you'll be asked to write:





a virtual tour of your hometown
a description of what's in your purse or wallet right now
a list of all the lies you've told
an account of a historical event from your own lifetime, in a way that reveals something significant about yourself




Perfectly sized to take to a cafe, on vacation, or on your morning commute, this book is designed for practicing your creative writing a little bit at a time.

Review quote

"Good writing begins with WRITING-anything! JUST WRITE, GODAMMIT! Inside these books are 388 wildly creative, ridiculously fun ideas and prompts to get you going. Seriously, if these workbooks don't get you going, then you need to forget about writing and go open a dry-cleaning franchise."--Mary Roach "bestselling author of Stiff, Spook, Bonk, and Grunt, among others"
