I had a stellar Christmas
This may go down as a “stellar” Christmas for me. Story guru John Truby points out in his examination of The Interview Game that memoir/true story has been a hot genre in recent years. In the two days of Christmas 2014, I had the extreme good fortune to see three stellar films: Interstellar and two great memoir/true story films.
Christmas Eve I saw Wild based on Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir. Christmas afternoon I saw The Imitation Game. While Alan Turing solves the puzzle of Enigma during World War II, Cheryl walks through her puzzling recent past experience on the Pacific Coast Trail.
Is your life puzzling? Try walking it out on paper. Maybe YOU, too, are a stellar bestseller!
