Writing Memoir: The Book

Here’s my summer writing desk at the cabin in the Sandhills.

I’ve had time to turn back to my new book. You know what that’s like—life often gets in the way. I’m writing about love and inheritance and playing with modular and linear structures in this new book.

Are you familiar with modular structure? It’s like a collage where you piece together separate, yet related, chunks of writing that create a meaningful juxtapositions and move the story forward. Very freeing to work with. Modular structure is often non-linear, and that is, of course, how many of us think.
