I am often asked the question, “How do I write my story?”
People say they just can’t get started.
Just write from the heart. Write how you feel and just let it pour out without any thought about editing or anything else. That’s when the best happens. And most cleansing. I learned that trick years ago since I had to write for a living (wrote commercials).
You can always edit later.
I don’t believe there is such thing as writer’s block. You just put yourself in that spot where you feel and it will come. Know it will. Be sure it will and do not let yourself think otherwise.
I get ideas and jot them down on my phone memo pad. And sometimes I get an idea and I just write it on the phone and edit later.
Writing has been an absolute lifesaver for me to work through all the pain and grief of Charles’ suicide. Which has been insurmountable. I hope it helps you, too.
