Publisher's Summary

This is your roadmap for completing the memoir you've dreamed about writing.
"Rachael Herron resonates with our audience, and not just because she knows her stuff-she does-or because she's hilarious-she is-but because her honesty and earnestness come through in all her messaging." (Samantha Sanders, Writer's Digest)
Writing a memoir is daunting! You're the expert on your life, naturally, but narrating and organizing your own experiences in the best way can feel impossible. Many writers become frustrated in early drafting stages and quit after a couple of brief attempts. Learn from best-selling memoirist Rachael Herron (who teaches this class at Stanford Continuing Studies) how to fast-draft your memoir while keeping its structure compelling. Learn how to frame your life's story and give it a natural arc to keep your reader glued to the page. Figure out how to handle those family and friends you're writing about. Explore what truth means in memoir. Work quickly to quiet the inner critic.
Most of all, learn how to get out of your own way to get the words on the page. You can do this! Rachael will show you how.

Helpful (Really) and Funny to Boot!

I found nothing but great advice here, and the author is anything but boring.

The narration is superb, the chapters are easily navigated, and this process will work for anyone ready to take on this otherwise daunting project.

I found my resource!

Love this!

I read the book and had to get the audio version too. I'm a huge fan of both of Rachael's podcasts and was anxiously waiting for the audio. Also, as an indie author who is also thinking about recording my own audiobook narration, I'm very encouraged that this book was recorded in her bedroom using bed toppers as sound dampeners. Thanks Rachael!
