This week, we read a short excerpt of Anne Lamott’s book Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life called “Shitty First Drafts,” part of which is a memoir about how she deals with writing a first draft. She writes with a good sense of humor, which helps because writing a first draft is a touchy subject for just about everyone.

In this memoir, focus on your own writing process–your own ways of dealing with writing a first draft. You can focus on your process overall (thinking about many different times you’ve had to write) or you can focus on one specific project (it can even be a project you’ve done for this class) and tell the story of that particular process. You can compare your composing process for writing vs composing something else (music, a video, etc)–is all composition the same?

In your memoir, use some of the stylistic elements we’ve been analyzing this quarter:

use of parenthesis to include extra information (like King)
use of short sentence sandwiched between two long ones for impact (like Noah)
lots of modifiers (be aware of how often you use adjectives and adverbs–try to use more than you have in the past)
characterization–there may not be other characters in this memoir since it’s about your writing process, but you as the narrator are also a “character”– so spend some time characterizing yourself (describing yourself and your motivations)
dialogue or internal monologue
