Writing a Memoir? Stop. Maybe Not.

In today’s NYT Book Review, Neil Genzlinger makes a compelling case for not writing the memoir.

His rule of thumb: “if you didn’t feel you were discovering something as you wrote your memoir, don’t publish it.Instead hit the delete key and then go congratulate yourself for having lived a perfectly good, undistinguished life. There’s no shame in that.”
Hmm. I don’t need to write my memoir? That certainly will free up some time.
