Writing Memoir (Lit Starts): A Book of Writing Prompts

by San Francisco Writer's Grotto Author and Julie Lythcott-Haims Foreword

A common myth is that writing is a solitary act, a belief that couldn't be further from the truth. Most writers rely on the critiquing, support, and most of all guidance of others, because let’s face it, writing is hard. What's even harder is writing about yourself! It's for these reasons that this book is so incredibly useful. Written by the San Francisco Writer's Grotto, a collection of writers aimed at nurturing the work of other authors, this book guides readers through writing their own impactful memoires. Along with writing prompts the book also contains a foreword by New York Times author Julia Lythcott-Haims, where she explains the use and purpose behind writing a memoire, giving the reader an overall understanding of the subject and what they should expect in writing their own. Writing prompts range from a virtual tour of your hometown, to a detailed inventory of your wallet/ purse, and include many more creative and addictive prompts to get your pen on paper.
