Starting New Book

Just started working on my next book.  It’s titled Yank – An American in 1960’s Swinging London.  Up to now all my writing has been fiction.  This is the first non-fiction work I’ve attempted.  It’s a memoir.  I’ve been reading a lot of memoirs lately, especially about people’s experiences of living abroad.  In my last post I told you about Marlena de Blasi’s work.  Those are all memoir based and I felt inspired to write about my time in London in the swinging London era.

I was uncertain if it would work for me to write other than fiction.  But as I’ve gone along I find it is working just fine.  I am really enjoying the process and keep remembering incidents I want to include.  I’ve already written 10,000 words and it seems like I’ve hardly started.  There’s a lot of material to cover.

I will keep you posted as I progress.  By the way what do you think of the title.  Let me know your thoughts.
