Lies About Writing Your Life Story
- *You have to be a famous celebrity.
- *You must have an amazing life.
- *You can’t write your life story until you’re old and gray.
- *Nobody will read it, so what’s the point?
Like Ralph Fletcher’s other books for young writers, this one will give tons of practical advice on how you can write your autobiography, memoir, or personal narrative. He includes interviews with other well-known authors (Jerry Spinelli, Jack Gantos, Kathi Appelt) who have written this kind of writing.
“It’s an odd thing with autobiographical writing. You may be the world’s best expert on your life, but through this process you’ll learn a great deal bout yourself. When you write your life story, you’re always an explorer, forever arriving on the shore of yourself. Bon voyage!”-Ralph Fletcher
