Memoirs-R-Us!

Week of January 30—Creative Challenge #1
Memoirs-R-Us!

The inspiration for this challenge comes from Lin Oliver, SCWBI executive director, you led participants at the 2010 LA conference in a similar activity.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.Think of a famous person (living or dead) and then create a title for that person’s memoir.
2.Think outside the box, find the humor, push the limits.
3. Don’t stop with just one! Keep stretching and making connections for more titles.

Examples:
            I’m Head Over Heels for You by Anne Boleyn
            IHOP by Captain Kangaroo         
            Hair to Eternity by Snookie
            I Was Purplicious Before Purplicious Was Cool by Barney
SHARING:
Post your titles as comments. I’ll compile a final list for all to view!
