Excerpt

Of all the subjects available to you as a writer, the one you know best is yourself: your past and your present, your thoughts and your emotions. Yet it’s probably the subject you try hardest to avoid.

Writing about one’s life is naturally related to how long one has lived.

Which brings me to memoir as a form.

One secert of the art is detail.

But the most interesting character in a memoir, we hope, will turn out to be the person who wrote it.

The best gift you have to offer when you write personal history is the gift of yourself. Give yourself permission to write about yourself, and have a good time doing it.

这章关于如何写作个人回忆录。

一直以来都认为,写回忆录是年长者的特权,年轻人不多大经历可供誊写。或者,朴拙地把性命中重要的事情都记下来,会有羞耻感。好像在向别人展现
赤裸的本身同样。因此也避免除看其他人的回忆录,总认为那里面要么都是旁人的私密事,要么就是贸易运作的产品。明天读完这章,反思本身为何
会出现这种设法,大略仍是和从小受到的教育有关。不要表现本身,要蕴藉,要谦让。小我私家在这个进程中被压得很低,常日里几乎不具有感。想起来批判沈三白的人说,难道历史上如芸娘同样的人很少么?不,她们是具有的,只是不记录而已。又想起来前段时光读坂本龙一的《音乐即自在》,虽然说近似回忆录,但是
教学在其中的留白很多,只匆匆记上几笔大事。东方人确切
蕴藉,因此
魏晋放任达旦才如此为人所推许啊【我都在写些啥orz】
