How to Embellish Your Life Story

If you're looking for a giggle this weekend, visit e-zine Slate here for a tutorial by Christoper Beam on "The Fake Memoirist's Survival Guide."

Beam's tips include the following:

Specificity is your enemy
Write what you know--but no one else does
Be a victim
Check your paper trail
Don't leave witnesses
Don't leave clues!
Don't tell anyone--especially your biographer
Beware of blurbs
When cornered, confess
