How to Write About Your Life
Who Should Take This Course
You know you have great stories in your head, but it’s hard to get yourself to write them. Penelope Trunk has been writing about her life for 30 years and it’s still hard for her to sit down and write—every single time it’s a struggle. But the payoff—having stories about her life that people pay her to write—is exhilarating and fulfilling. She can show you how to get that for yourself.
The key to writing about your life is having a clear sense of why you’re writing and what you’re writing about. But you can’t spend too much time philosophizing or you’ll never get started. This course will show you the tactics Penelope has developed for balancing the exploration of deep psychology in writing with the brass-knuckles requirement of forcing yourself to sit down and write, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in.
Why You Should Take This Course
This course will show you daily tactics and yearly goals so that you can tell stories effectively. This course will also make you FEEL like a writer, which is surprisingly more fulfilling than any other part of learning to write.
