For example, you can write everything you know about a person, or list all you can remember in an important room, and all events and details associated with those people or places. Or you can work thematically, from a list of childhood heroes, or favorite summer smells and sounds. Invention writing helps with discovery and focus as well as amassing the details you’ll eventually need to write compelling descriptions. No one can keep all the details and insights needed for a memoir or an essay organized only in the mind.

You have to be honest with yourself. As Groucho Marx put it, The trouble with writing a book about yourself is that you can’t fool around. If you write about someone else, you can stretch the truth from here to Finland. If you write about yourself the slightest deviation makes you realize instantly that there may be honor among thieves, but you are just a dirty liar. (Marx 3) So, while writing about what you have lived through and observed may not produce objective truth, you also have an obligation to the reader to be honest.
