Writing your history in 6 stages
Claire is passionate about helping authors come to a new place of consciousness and individual development by creating their own tales. Everybody talks about making your history these days. It' all right. It is not just any history, but the history of your own lives, the street card that has taken you to where you are today.
Why would anyone be interested in listening to our history? Now, I am a great supporter of this person-to-person storytelling, and I will tell you why: It has made a difference in my world. I' ve written novels before. Then my work took me to work for a journal where I could tell my own tales, and I was in unknown terrain.
It was not really in my interest to share my history - I was not a novelist for nothing. But, given my part as the author and publisher of this journal, I really had no option. So, I sit down at my computer and began to record the reality of my own lives with complete opposition.
And I was also afraid that no one would care about my history. So, I went back to my computer, gazed at a page that was empty for a while and started writing. However, this writing was not from a place of opposition, but from my own depth. When I reconnected with my history, I somehow gave her a vote.
I' ve written my history and followed the practices of help others to do the same. I believe not only that storytelling is an important way to get to know ourselves and find a cure, I also believe that it is a way to unite with others on a profoundly genuine one.
You' ve got to tell your own tale and tell the rest of the family! To write our own tales is the most fragile way of typing that we can do. Draw on your feelings. It will not vibrate with others if it is free of feelings, as I found while creating the first sketch of my own one.
So, take out your writing material and record some keys that connect you to your previous world. Well, then you' re writing about every emotion and the history behind it. Humans often make the error of beginning with their early memories of children and to move through their history in chronological order.
However, instead of beginning at the beginning, it is more useful to make a record of the most important turning points in your lives - the days when you were at a turning point and the directions you took represented a significant one. Just take down everything. Not much may seem, but it is astonishing how one remembrance will lead to another and allow you to delve more deeply into your history.
Like in all spelling, you can't use many of the scenarios you type, but that doesn't mean they have no use. One thing that will help you discover long lost memory is to use your mind. This will not only help you to recall the detail, but will also enhance your work.
You will find the topic. As soon as you have put together a large number of important sequences, you will probably see a topic appear. You are the key issue that drives your history. Your capacity to bear this subject through the succession of incidents you record makes your single scene a single one.
You may find more than one topic. You tell a tale. You' ve got your subject and a variety of scenarios; you've been through a crate of fabrics to explore your feelings, but have you been telling a tale? How about your history?
In the end, the best tales are those that are most connected to the readers. I believe this storytelling is one of the most worthwhile and enlightening things you can do for yourself and others. So, enter this place of uneasiness and type the words that give your live liberty and sense.
