Some guy writing under the pen name A7 has published a "blook" called How to Write a Memoir in Just Seven Wrenching Steps. I find his approach refreshing. The blook is not really a how-to (it's actually a memoir), and he has this dream in which readers become participants, sharing and commenting and even illustrating. It's a funny book (er, blook) that tackles some serious issues like bullying and suicide.
It's worth checking out here.
I've taken the liberty (I'm sure he won't mind) of sharing one of my favorite illustrations, "The Wrestler in the Kitchen" (which represents an analogy he uses in the second chapter, "Step Two: Come to Grips with Your Childhood").
