2.0 Writing Life Stories: How To Make Memories Into Memoirs, Ideas Into Essays And Life Into Literature
Another "must read" book that disappointed me. The problem was that the story was okay, but so much seemed to be missing, so much could have been expanded upon. So it was a true story, but still, as far as it being a book to read, it needed so much more.
