Writing is Therapeutic, Indeed!

Writing your memoir, the story that has shaped you is most certainly the path to healing.

Sometimes, we look at writing a letter, a blog post, an article, or even a book as a chore…

I challenge you to look at the project before you and ask, “How am I looking at my writing tasks? Am I avoiding the writing that could best serve me?”

Whatever the writing project is before you, could this project literally (puns always intentional) help you?

Could your project, the writing of your story, heal you?

Writing is releasing. Writing is an exercise in unleashing past traumas and letting go of negative experiences and emotions that often manifest in negative aspects of our lives either in disease, injury, or illness.

Writing your memoir, the story that has shaped you is most certainly the path to healing.

This therapeutic benefit of writing your story doesn’t stop there because once we have found this release through the writing of our story, we open ourselves up for new positive energy in our lives. We also provide magnificent benefits to others.

The possibilities blossom when we recognize that our own story can help someone else transform their own life!

Life is often challenging and hard. You have come through your own hells to, now, be gifted the chance to help another human being through your story.

Today, look back at your own journey and ask yourself, “How could my writing of my story transform my own life, my family’s lives, and the world?

Step into your greatness, rise above your fears and imagine what potential your story has to serve.

What does it take for an author to write compelling and successful Sci-Fi and Fantasy stories?

There is no such thing as fiction. Who are we to say that alternate realities do not exist?

This is the inspired theme that I use presently in my own fantasy stories of The Morning Star series, and the divine theme that I teach to my aspiring authors across my Story Launching programs.

To write a compelling Science Fiction and or a Fantasy story, authors are coached to write their world as if they are as real as their own believable reality that they reside.

The success of any Sci-Fi and Fantasy Story depends entirely upon the believability of the world they are creating, and this believability begins with the author believing it first.

The preparation and creation of this world, of course, is expanded and expounded upon by the author as the story evolves. And many of these details may never appear in the narrative for the reader. The details of such believable realities are woven and crafted by and for the author ultimately as the book’s foundation.

And only from this believable world do the setting, characters, dialogue, conflict, theme, and story emerge.

Mariah’s Dance

Mariah danced and twirled through the falling flakes. Her extra-large snow boots, handed down from her big brother, collected the moist powder pilling upon the street. Just as the snowflakes, she shone in her unique youthful beauty.

Her auburn locks bounced against her shoulders and ebony skin shone like frozen dew. The reflection in her eyes was as unique as each intricate laced crystal descending.

On Mariah danced while holding hands with school friends: close friends and one or two beaux through college and then finally her soul mate once the winds had gentled and the heavy white flakes swept down. They all had accompanied her in this snowflake crescendo.

The abrupt winds of life tasseled her hair and tore her skirts. The snowflakes continued to steadily fall, occasionally entangled in the treetops, to inevitable continue their descent as the sunshine kissed her once rosy cheeks leaving lines of laughter beside her almond eyes and smile as she twirled.

Pigtails and ponytails once peeked from beneath her woolen hats. Long flowing locks, the envy of the times, relented to shorter curls where snowflakes now could not be noticed amid the white in her hair as they rested along their descent.

And like the snowflake’s inevitable tumble, Mariah watched her babies and then her grandbabies grow and dance amid the falling snow.
