The other day we had a phone call from a new member who has wanted to write her life story for a long time and now is finally pushing herself to do it. I think it’s quite common to keep putting off this longstanding goal until we have time “someday.??? This caller simply dialed up her determination. Everyone has time. It’s all about priorities. Instead of that hour you watch TV, surf the Internet or even read, you could be writing.
Time wasn’t the caller’s major roadblock, though. Whenever she’d mention her intention to write her memoirs, friends and family members would downplay her ability to carry it through. As the first person in her family to graduate from college, and currently pursuing her master’s degree, she knew that she could do whatever she put her mind to doing. She’d had to overcome the same negativity to achieve those previous goals. In fact, she aimed to have her story inspire others to overcome their own obstacles, and she wanted to write it while she was still young and her memories were fresh.
I was very impressed and realized that many of you may be facing the same negativity. Here at Write My Memoirs we support you and believe in you! We know you can do it! And, as we told the caller, if you need writing help please contact us because if getting your story down is important to you, it’s important to us, too.
