Описание

Rich, funny, and moving personal narratives depend on a few key moments in time to anchor the story and give it impact. Shimmering Images teaches the aspiring memoirist how to locate key memories using Lisa's technique for finding, linking, and fleshing out those vibrant recollections of important moments and situations.

Shimmering Images will address:
*the difference between memoir and autobiography
*how to claim your voice
*the art of storytelling
*honesty, truth, and compassion in writing
*authentic dialogue and the need for specificity

Readers will learn how to craft a short piece of narrative nonfiction grounded in their core memories and master a technique they can use over and over again for writing other narratives.

A must-have book for anyone who has treasured Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott or Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg.

  • (4/5)
    In the realm of writing books, Shimmering Images stands out with some practical, clear suggestions. It certainly had its cheerleading component but it also had some meat. I particularly found it's suggestions on how to figure out a central theme to a collection of memories and then how to edit so that the theme becomes evident.
