REAL WRITING IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO PLAY IT SAFE
Beware anyone presuming to teach memoir writing who says of their own memoir work "There are places I just will not go."
THE AQUA MUSTANG, my latest book, is appearing in serial blog form in http://theaquamustang.blogspot.com. With further scenes and stories in a new blog, http://insistentscenes.blogspot.com For my book AUTHENTIC WRITING: A Memoir on Creating Memoir, please go to http://AuthenticWriting.com, or to Amazon or Barnes & Noble….. I believe fine writing is art and can deal with darkness. Among my early works is my Vietnam-era novel, Where Dragons Dwell (Harper's Magazine Press). But now I find fiction trivializes real experience, and thus concentrate on memoir in my writing and in the Authentic Writing Workshops that I do with my wife Marta Szabo, author of The Guru Looked Good.
