No one can tell your story as well as you.

But, I’m not going to lie to you. It can be terrifying to share your stories. And if you are writing memoir, you are basically admitting to a particular truth.

It might be about marriage, bankruptcy, cooking school, child birth, or homicide.

You are telling the world: This is the real deal. This is how it went down. This is what I learned from it. This is who I am because of it.

HERE IT IS!

It’s hard to do that – scary to do that! Because your mind says: What if I say all that and then I want to take it all back?!?!

You know you can’t do that!

So what you need to do is take up with some people you trust, start writing your stories down, get coached through the big picture, ask for feedback on the fiddly-bits—what to say, where it goes, how if flows—and get yourself in a nice safe space to write more and more content.

You know a big project won’t happen overnight and it won’t happen without a good bit of effort, but it will happen…

It will happen because you had the courage to take the leap…

and tell your story.
