If you want to put your life story down in words, where do you start? Exactly what story are you hoping to tell? How are you going to fill hundreds of pages? How do you plan it out? Memoirist, blogger, and writing teacher Kim Brittingham shares her insight into getting started with your writing and crafting your memoir. Starting with the basic questions every writer should ask themselves, such as why do you want to write a memoir; what story do you want to tell; what form should your story take; who is the audience; and most importantly, why does anyone care? Kim shares her experience and her wisdom, reviewing key aspects of the writing process, including characterization, plotting, theme, focus, point of view, editing, and revising. And she adds extra information on the business of getting published and ways to get your story read.

There are many fantastic books on how to write. There are also a lot of great workbooks on how to write a great essay. The problem that most of these books share is that they don't provide feedback. Sure, an adult can check the work, but in most cases that adult is not a teacher and really has no idea how to properly grade an essay. I have attempted to provide two solutions to that problem in this workbook. First, I have provided at least two genuine student examples for each assignment. Every chapter has a student �created writing response that has been graded and evaluated. While this is a not as good as direct, teacher feedback, it at least gives a guideline to what is expected. Second, an email has been provided at the end of this book, where you can send one of your assignments for evaluation, and you will receive direct feedback on your work.The articles in this book are all original. Each have something to do with the school life of a student. It's my hope that students will be more engaged with - and more likely to complete - the book because it covers topics they care about. The references mentioned in the ten articles are all listed in the back of the book. If your student seems especially interested in one of the topics, please encourage them to follow the links in this book to learn more. The writing lessons in this book were chosen based on the mistakes that most of my students make. If students can conquer the 10 lessons in this book, they will be able to write very good essays. The lessons are simple and easy to understand. My goal is that they will turn a student into a good writer, capable of getting high marks. Each lesson builds on the lesson before it. The lessons and techniques taught in this book are not creative or complex. The entire goal of this book is to get students to write well organized essays, with simple ideas that can be supported by well developed details.If you are in the market for a creative writing workbook, you have come to the wrong place. This workbook teaches a strict structure that aims to shut down creative writing. Sound terrible? There is a time and a place for creative writing. The time and place for creative writing is not on a state test. During the state test, you want your student using a tried and true method. Yes, perhaps even a boring method. Why? If your goal is for your student to express themselves, regardless of the score they receive, please return this book now. You can have your money back. However, if you would like your student to get a high score on a state test that will allow them to go to a great school that may allow your student to be creative, brilliant, and amazing, then finish this book.The hamburger method of writing may not be fun. It may not be very original. It is certainly not creative. However, the hamburger method is well organized. It is structured to perfection. The great people who grade these essays love the hamburger method. Why? It's well organized, well structured, and easy to grade.

Accountant and financial advisor Lacey Chamberlain doesn’t consider herself a control freak. She’s merely a planner—orderly, neat, and content in her tidy little life. When a marketing firm moves into the empty office next door, the loud-music-playing, stinky-food-ordering, kickball-in-the-hall staff make Lacey crazy. Marketing expert Alicia Wright is spontaneous, flies by the seat of her pants, and lives in the moment—all the things Lacey is not. She’s also gorgeous, thoughtful, and seems determined to make Lacey like her. They say opposites attract, but for how long? And is that really a good idea?
