Tackle the challenges of memoir writing and share your story.

‘Cathy is the person who first told me to write about my mental health when I was nervous to do so. She is a great writer herself and this is brilliant.’ – Matt Haig, author of Reasons to Stay Alive

Why do we want to write and what stops us? How do we fight the worry that no-one will care what we have to say? What can we do to overcome the obstacles in our way?

Complete with a compendium of advice from amazing writers such as Dolly Alderton, Adam Kay and Candice Carty-Williams, this book is here to help you discover the pleasure and solace to be found in writing; the profound satisfaction of wrestling a story onto a page and seeing the events of your life transformed through the experience of writing a memoir.

Perfect for seasoned writers as well as writing amateurs and everyone in between, this helpful handbook will steer you through the philosophical and practical challenges of writing, whether you’re struggling with writers block or worrying what people will say. Intertwined with reflections and exercises, Write It All Down is at once an intimate conversation and an invitation to share your story.

This is a gift of a book to aspiring writers, and any writer. Cathy has mined her own experience, heart and wisdom to guide us gently in to putting words on a page, and those pages building to a book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants inspiration, concrete tips and encouragement to write. -- Julia Samuel I've been so inspired by Cathy's generous wisdom, and I can hear her voice in these pages...[Write It All Down] is full of wonderful advice, but above all it feels like having an encouraging friend by your side. -- Catherine Cho Astonishingly good, not just on how to write about your life, but why to as well.' * Steve Biddulph, bestselling author of 'Raising Boys' *
