So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

A quote from Alice Munro

I like and agree with this quote:
Short-story writer Alice Munro (books by this author), born in Wingham, Ontario (1931). 
Alice Munro said,  "It's not possible to advise a young writer because every young writer is so different. You might say, 'Read,' but a writer can read too much and be paralyzed. Or, 'Don't read, don't think, just write,' and the result could be a mountain of drivel. If you're going to be a writer you'll probably take a lot of wrong turns and then one day just end up writing something you have to write, then getting it better and better just because you want it to be better, and even when you get old and think 'There must be something else people do,' you won't quite be able to quit."

I have added a new blog to our sidebar. Check out Judy Goldman's

The first post I read is filled with advice for anyone who is writing a book and hopes to publish one day.
Learn about agents, query letters, and more.
Are you working on a novel, a memoir, a book of short stories?
Tell us about your book.
