To Do

November 12th, 2007 by Rachel

Well, it’s Monday again. Here are some things on my week’s To Do List: 1) Blog on SMITH (check). 2) Turn in three articles by Wednesday. 3)Have friends over for Project Runway. Usually my list stays privately scrawled in my notebook, but when I post it online instead, it tells a little story about my life. Already we’ve learned that I’m a writer, a procrastinator, and a geek. Riveting stuff, eh?

Sasha “Quirkyalone” Cagen has gathered hundreds of lists far more fascinating than mine into a fun little book that tells personal stories in bite-size bits of information. What could be SMITHier?

Here’s a video about her process:

And here are some things to add to your to-do list, if you happen to be both a New Yorker and a memoir fiend like me:

1) The Best Memoirists Pageant Ever will take place at The Bowery Poetry Club, NYC on Saturday, November 24th, starting at 3:00 PM. Come on out and hear true stories by writers with recently completed memoirs or memoirs-in-progress including Memoirville’s own fabulous Kim Brittingham.

2) What’s True, What’s Not? Redefining the Memoir, A Panel Discussion Sponsored by Women’s National Book Association, NYC Chapter on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 from 6-8pm at the Center for Independent Publishing; 20 West 44th Street.
