9781582970875: Write from Life: Turning Your Experiences into Compelling Stories

It's easy for people to write about their feelings in a journal. It's more difficult, however, to convert personal experiences into stories worthy of publication - fiction, nonfliction or poetry. Meg Files teaches writers how to transform their raw experiences into finished pieces. They'll learn how to identify story-worthy material, conquer fears associated with personal exposure, determine a story's focus, shape the material into a cohesive whole, then edit and revise as needed. Writers working in any form will find this book invaluable for supplying them with the inspiration and practical instruction they need to get their experiences and emotions into print.
