One of the people in the Tuesday group suggested I start reading other memoirs to get some ideas. I had already read Angela’s Ashes a number of years ago, but I don’t remember much about it. I heard the Glass Castle is good so I took it out of our local library the other day. I can’t put it down. Her upbringing reminds me a lot of my husband’s. Then, I read in the newspaper that it took her six months to write it and five years to edit. Yikes! I don’t know if I have that long. Anyway, that was a good suggestion. First of all, I learned that it’s more of a story than just listing facts.
I’m going to buy the book, Your Life as Story, to find out the structure of a story.
