The Prompter Room

For Friday, January 6, 2017:

 

As you start out in rough drafts [of your memoir], setting down stories as clearly as you can, there begins to burble up onto the page what’s exclusively yours both as a writer and a human being.  If you trust the truth enough to keep unveiling yourself on the page … the book will naturally structure itself to maximize what you’re best at.  You’re best at it because it sits at the core of your passions.
