Disappointed. The title would have you believe that it's a book about maybe letting go and write. It's not. Very general ideas about writing, many MANY quotes form other books. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Momma2-3

|Should you write a memoir?||
Lara makes it clear in her book that anecdotes do not a memoir or an essay make. Nothing wrong with writing them down, but you need to plug them into a narrative with a voice and shape it in a way that you reveal how this changed you. I think she saved me a lot of time and effort.
