Working on My Memoirs

This is a living document that is by no means completed. I am making a table of contents for my memoirs that will probably change and adapt as this project continues. It will ultimately end up as a book I will be giving away and selling, as the case merits. The titles below are all blog posts of mine I have handpicked for the memoirs. I just need to clean them up and string them together in a normal book rhythm. You can find all of them in their current state here at my blog: http://www.rileycentral.net
