My memoir: She Who Writes

How to use life as writing inspiration

I think writing about your life is courageous, actually. Inspirational? Sure, but also incredibly brave. When we write about our lives, we face the truth on paper and our screens. When we share it with the world, we're putting our experiences out for judgement or approval, neither of which we expected. And life writing can come in many forms, right?

Writing about trauma

Let the darkness out. I'm a fan of Brené Brown and the wonderful work she does around vulnerability.

When we remove our distractions, our triggers, our perceived competition, our peer updates and our notifications, all we are left with is ourselves. But that is all we need.
