    This weekend workshop, recorded live, is a primer on writing the modern memoir, which, unlike your grandmother's memoir, can be written at any age. Also, a memoir can be about just part of your life. "The more you are present, the more the past will come up and be alive," says Natalie. "Only right now can give you your past."

    Cindy says: "For right brain writers, not left brain"

    If you want to learn the mechanics of how to write a memoir, this is not the program for you.

    It is mostly her giving out writing prompts, and then you hear students reading what they wrote. If this is what you want, you'll love it. Some of the student writing is great!

    The program is poorly edited, in my opinion. There are a lot of bells ringing and musical chimes that are too loud, serve no purpose in the audio program, and take up a lot of time. I found that very annoying.

    She gives a lot of inspiration quotes that right-brained writers may find inspiring. For a left-brain writer like me who likes practical instruction, nuts and bolts, and bulleted lists, this was not the best choice.
