Identifying the key transformational turning points in your life is an important first step in writing your story. In this session, we will explore how to narrow down these turning points and associate specific stories and lessons to each one. Once you have the building blocks, how do you create a beginning, middle, and end? We will work with the standard narrative arc of conflict, crisis, and resolution to create your own unique storytelling format. We will also address the ethical dilemmas that come up with personal writing. What techniques can you use to tell your stories and still distance yourself and your loved ones from direct exposure? You will come away from this session with alternatives and best practices.
