For as long as the world has existed stories have been told through cave paintings, pictograms, and writing. Now we have blogging, I wonder what the next thing will be.
I have enjoyed this course and it has made me more confident in telling my story. I was one of those people that would be surrounded by crunched up paper because I just couldn’t get it right, or so I though. At a very young age we all learn how to listen to a story and as we get older telling stories becomes an every day conversation. Having the passion about what you are talking or writing about and making your audience feel it brings them into your story. I have no problem getting up in front of people and speaking, in my voice they can hear my passion but how to get that passion into writing is a whole new talent. One of the things that I have learned through this course is that I write better when I finish what I start immediately, no taking a break or starting than finishing the next day. Not sure why this works for me but it does. When I started this course I didn’t know the importance of adding images to blogs but now I do and use them regularly.
After starting this course I bought a journal to keep in our family room and we, my husband and I, have been doing entries. We told our kids about it and they thought it would be something for them to treasure in the future. Someday when I am old and maybe even forgetful I can look back and see these great memories written down and tell the story I have lived.
