One Piece of Advice...

On writing memoir and, well, giving advice:

Whenever students in my memoir workshops give me their reasons for not writing a memoir, I say, “Look at your objection as a solvable problem.”

If you really want to extend your question into all of life, I could repeat the coaching I received in my counseling classes. “Never give advice.” I’m not always good at following that.--Jerry Waxler, author, instructor, and creator of the Memory Writers Network.
