You've put off writing your life story long enough.
Since you found your way here, I'm guessing you've wanted to write your life story for a long time. Have you diligently kept a journal for many years, enjoyed researching family genealogy, chronicled family history, organized family photos, or even started writing that story, but soon got stuck and gave up on it? If so, you're not alone. Relax and know that you're in the right place.
Does this sound like you?
✅People have said you should write your life story.
✅You think writing your life story means churning out a 300+ page book like well-known memoirists.
✅You're sure it's impossible for an amateur to write a memoir, especially when you just want to share it with your family, not publish it.
✅ When you attempted to write your life story, you had no idea how to start.
✅ You feel like you're spinning your wheels, wasting time reading "how to" books and watching countless YouTube videos.

In spite of my degrees and teaching experience,
I didn't know how to start writing my personal life story either.
It wasn't so long ago that I was where you are now and I know what it feels like to want to write your life story, but not know where to start. Writing your life story is very different from other types of writing.
Over the past 6 years, I've discovered a technique to help the everyday people get the confidence and drive to easily complete the stories they have postponed for many years. I know how exhilirating it feels to finally bring your story to life. I want to help you experience that.

"Before the class, I was having trouble with just sitting down and writing. Since taking this class, I feel more motivated to write at least 1-3 times per week. The class helped me to see the importance of doing it and the pleasure of having a finished story to read.
