Preparing to Write My Story

Preparing to Write My Story - student project

I loved how Meghan framed the distinction between confiding and confessing in your writing. The three layers of intense experience, universal truth, and intellectual hook help crystallize exactly what I’d like to achieve in my own pages. Not sure if I’ll ever get to the point where I’m ready to share, but Meghan’s mindset and examples definitely made that idea seem less intimidating

I love the idea that my writing could help others feel less alone –– some of Meghan’s recent Medium posts have certainly done the same for me.

I'm still in the early stages of how I'd like to approach the project, and I plan to use this project workspace as a place to develop ideas. I find that the hardest part of writing a personal story is getting started, I’m going to try Meghan’s “fill in the blank” exercises and see where they lead me. 

Hopefully more to come soon! In the meantime, very much looking forward to seeing everyone's work.
