Writing from Within: A Guide to Creativity and Life Story Writing
Telling one's life stories can be a voyage of self-discovery, freeing up images and thoughts that have long remained hidden. Bernard Selling shows new and veteran writers how to deal with the fear of writing: recall childhood events and important life experiences; find their authentic writing "voice"; and use techniques such as narrative, dialogue, and inner monologue to bring stories to life. This edition is in a larger formal. It contains a new section on creativity and gives guidelines on expanding into fiction writing.
