Hemley shows writers how to use their lives, those of their friends and family members, newspaper accounts and conversations overheard as the bases for novels and short stories.

Through insightful commentary and hands-on exercises, the book focuses on building and honing such essential skills as: -- Creating fiction from journal entries-- Taking license with fact-- Identifying the memories ripest for development-- Ethically fictionalizing other people's stories-- Gaining distance from personal experience-- Distinguishing between memoir and fiction
