12 easy steps to get your life story written


12 easy steps to get your life story written!

Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it is YOUR LIFE STORY, flying out there like a kite with wind in its sails, breath in its lungs and blood coursing through its veins. Let your story fly free by building it into a compelling tale which people will want to read, keep reading and recommend to their family and friends.

How will we do this?

In this comprehensive course, you will find all the inspiration and tools you need to write your life story.

You will find the focus of your story and its purpose, identify the people who have populated your life, and explore how you can capture their essence in words.
You will uncover the emotional truth so that your story has a beating heart and soul. Together, we will find the shape of your story: whether it is about your ancestors, or your own story about your life, your profession or your hobby.

Through a series of prompts and exercises, we will explore themes, objects, places and events. We will capture tales of the unexpected; life-affirming stories, plot twists and cliff hangers. You will decide if you want to tell tales of the ghosts and skeletons in the family closet, the secrets and lies, the juicy bits... and we will weave these elements into a compelling, page-turning story of your life.

By the end of this course, you will have written YOUR life story ready to publish or share with family and friends.

So, why should you Write Your Life Story?

Perhaps the most compelling reason is that ‘Your Story’ is your legacy to your family and you can publish a book which your family will cherish for years to come.
