Just a quick message to let you all know about my guest post over at Word Strumpet.
A couple of weeks ago I was reading Charlotte Rains Dixon’s newsletter. She mentioned how we often tell stories about ourselves, but how some of these stories can be quite negative and slowly erode our self-esteem. She mentioned 5 steps to dealing with this problem:
- Observe – Make a note of the stories you tell.
- Write About It – Pull your story apart.
- Assign it to a Character – Use your story as one of your character’s stories.
- Consider All the Elements – Look for the main elements, characters, themes, plot, action.
- Write a New Story
I tried out the five steps on one of my stories and really enjoyed the process. The guest post is about my journey through those steps. Enjoy!
Oh, and check out my new photo!
