“You could write a book about that!”
Ever hear this? Ever think the same, but discard the thought? Or start, only to get bogged down or overwhelmed? We are witnessing the democratization of memoir. Everyone has a story to tell. Is this your time?
A recent poll found that the #1 retirement aspiration of baby boomers was to write a memoir. More folks than ever are following through on that dream and discovering how personal writing can be an inspiring, rewarding, energizing activity.
After years of hesitation, I wrote and published my memoir, King of Doubt. In 2016, I began teaching, coaching and editing others’ personal writing. Nothing in life as given me more purpose, focus or energy.
Discovering your story is like mining for gold. Finding your story will give you confidence, pride and energy. If you are ready for a bold, new adventure, I invite you to try “Mindful Writing,” a unique approach to personal nonfiction writing. I teach mindfulness practices designed to relax and help you uncover the stories that are hiding inside; and writing practices that will help your writing burst to life on the page, make your story irresistible, whether you’re writing for yourself, as a legacy for children and grandchildren, or for a wider audience.
You don’t need to be an experienced writer to become a mindful writer, but you do need to be curious, willing to work, and willing to trust. Come to my 3-day introductory workshop for connections, inspiration and the journey of a lifetime.
