Hi, I'm Michelle! I've been documenting my family's personal history since I was in the second grade. I've taught my children how to interview their grandparents.
I keep a daily journal. I research my family's genealogy. I even talk about my life all of the time in blogs and networking events. And, I am blessed and honored to have the opportunity to help so many grateful people write and record their memoirs.
But even with my experience, finding time and knowing what to write about my own life was difficult . . . at least until I started looking at my writing differently.
When I became certified as a Birren Guided Autobiography (GAB) instructor, I also started writing the raw materials of my own memoir. I'll admit, it's still a work in progress, but every time I write, I learn more about myself. I forgive and grieve and connect the dots. I recall joyful memories that help me connect with my family, and I remember people I've lost. Writing my memoir is not therapy, but it is therapeutic.
In my Hindsight is 20/20 Guided Memoir Course and/or Workshop: Write Your Story with a New Perspective, I'm going to teach you how to start your memoir.
