about

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 café, on vacation, or on your morning commute, this book is designed for practicing your creative writing a little bit at a time.
