The Memoir Revolution is Changing the World
The world turns faster and faster, until some days it feels like we will spin into oblivion. One way to stay sane is to lose ourselves in fiction. But after the show or book is finished, we return to the same world we tried to escape.
However, there is a different type of story that will alter the way you look at yourself and the people around you. Thanks to the cultural trend to read and write memoirs, we are immersing ourselves in stories about real people. By entering their real-world experience, we learn deep lessons about each other, and about the experience of being human.
Memoirs help make sense of the past, provide a path to healing and strength, and enable us to share ourselves with others.
Read my book Memoir Revolution to learn how this cultural trend is changing the world.
Join the Revolution. Become the Author of Your Life
Typically, we store our past in haphazard collection, allowing us to see disconnected fragments. This heap of memories can’t provide wisdom, or lessons, and certainly can’t provide a road map to the future.By creatively finding your Story, you develop a pathway from the painful parts, through courage and trials, to the more satisfying parts. Like all good stories, your memoir ends at a higher point than when it started.
Start Now to Courageously Overcome the Blank Page
To share your story, you must overcome obstacles that stand in your way. Without a boss telling you to sit and write, tap into your own deep well of creativity, overcome self-doubts, resolve conflicting priorities, and find your voice.
