This course has taught me so much about story telling.
I have always been obsessed with stories and I often scour ravenously through novels and listen in rapture to other’s tales of adventure and trial. I have often struggled to tell my own story though as I easily get stuck in knowing how to explain myself or what to tell and not tell. When I learned about identifying target audiences in this course and how we can use our audiences’ perceptions and interests to shape how we communicate with them, this opened up all new possibilities of how I can share my own stories.
I want to share stories about my life: my adventures, successes, failures, and lessons learned in hopes that others will share theirs back. I want to share stories that I’ve invented, and I have a long list of story ideas that are just waiting to burst from my head. I’ve felt that these stories have been trapped for so many years inside of me, but I feel like I’ve learned so much already in this course that I can start setting them free.
My journey as a writer is only just beginning and I now see the possibilities that posting my content online offers. I’m not looking for fame but instead just an outlet to share what is bursting to be released. Thank you for being a part of this journey and I look forward to reading more of your stories as we continue along the way.
