Do You Need Structure to Begin? - Danielle Ofri Answers

I'm sharing another clip from the Q&A session my Advanced Memoir Workshop students and I had with Danielle Ofri back in January. Here she talks about whether or not you need an outline or structure to begin a book.



  1. Wow, it is so encouraging to hear someone have success from doing that! Ironically, I'm in the process of doing the exact same thing--tacking together a ton of independent stories into a book. I only hope I can find a publisher at the end of it all.

  2. Well...structure. I always write out a plan but then a character seems to take over my story.
