“Reflection can actually change, if not the outcome, then the attitude about particular heart-rending events. And it’s so often the case that brave writing begets brave living.” Author, instructor, and former rock and roll groupie Pamela Des Barres leads readers toward bravery in both writing and living in this book filled with creative prompts, lively exemplary anecdotes, and comparative references to music and literature. The book acts as a guide through the process of facing and reflecting on one’s own memories—whether heart-rending, dangerous, regretful, youthful, or transgressive—and how to write about these experiences with a new attitude of confidence and awareness.
