Elizabeth Wurtzel interview by Liz Phair

WURTZEL: I think people have this idea that it’s easier to write a memoir than it is a novel, but it’s not easier to do anything. Either you know how to write or you don’t. Lots of people try to write memoirs because they think, "I rode my motorcycle cross-country—I have a memoir." But it’s not like that. It’s not about whether you have an interesting story; it’s about whether you know how to tell it.

Embroiled in controversies, Trump seeks boost on foreign trip | Reuters

Conversations with some officials who have briefed Trump and others who are aware of how he absorbs information portray a president with a short attention span.

He likes single-page memos and visual aids like maps, charts, graphs and photos.

National Security Council officials have strategically included Trump’s name in "as many paragraphs as we can because he keeps reading if he’s mentioned," according to one source, who relayed conversations he had with NSC officials.

Trump likes to look at a map of the country involved when he learns about a topic.

"He likes to visualize things," said a senior administration official. "The guy’s a builder. He has spent his whole life looking at architectural renderings and floor plans."
