My head said, “That’s an awful picture. Don’t upload that one.” But my heart said, “Yes.”
I can write like the moon can shine.
In other words, I can’t write on my own. I need sunlight in order to shine. I need people, love, and God in order to write.
My questions for you are as follows:
Do you hate/dislike to write?
Are you just NOT a blogger?
But you want to share your story?
You want people to know about you… your struggles… God’s work in your life… or other stuff that relates you?
Do you want to tell everyone how great that week at camp was, how life-changing it was when you were twelve, but can’t find the words to do it when you sit down in front of paper?
This is my new jump. There’s a good chance I’ll fail. But I’m sick of talking about myself all the time. I want to talk about you. I want to tell your story.
If you aren’t sure how that would look, I do some “how they impacted me stories” under the “30 Days” Challenge tag on my sidebar. Clearly, I am doing a poor job at that challenge. But each of those blogs are so important to me. And they give you an idea about one option for me to write about others.
I figure if I fail at this new idea, it’s a jump worth taking. This is the time to fail! No one reads this blog. Ok, YOU do. But you’re one of a handful.
It’s a little “Chicken soup for the soul,” but hopefully it’ll be different. I’m not sure how. I just don’t want it to be overly “feel good.”
These blogs take longer to write because I need permission to publish facts about people, haha. But excuses excuses.
Fill out the form below if you’re interested. Please be interested. PLEASE. :)
Even if you’re not sure anyone wants to hear it. I’m a firm believer that every single person is interesting. Every single person has a story buried inside them. And people connect in the stories. We connect in the details.
But not everyone enjoys telling the stories in this way. Not everyone enjoys writing.
Tell your story now while you’re excited and passionate. Don’t let your wonderful and beautiful story waste away trapped inside you.
I’ll do one of the following things with your story:
1) Turn it into a blog. If I do this, I will send you the blog before I post it for you to review and make sure you are comfortable with what I am sharing.
2) Use it as inspiration for a book. Not sure if this book would be nonfiction or fiction. But if for some reason I don’t post the blog, I’ll hold onto your story.
