Writing Your Life: new forum reply to Question of the week: What are you learning in writing your life story?

New reply from Eve Wile

<p>I am also learning how to add more details and being aware that people cannot see the picture in my head, so my writing needs to be more precise.  One thing that stands out lately is some clarity to my story.  I knew it was about the struggles I have had with my daughter's disease, but I have found out that many of my beliefs that I should always be strong and not show my feelings have come from my childhood.  Not only have I learned more about myself, but also more about the story I am trying to tell.  </p>

Question of the week: What are you learning in writing your life story?

<p>I've said it many times because I've seen the proof. The person who benefits the most from writing his/her life story is the author. We may gain insight, clarification, understanding, healing, or a host of other benefits.</p>
<p>What have you learned in the course of writing that you didn't know before? What enabled you to learn these things? Tell us all about it. Be specific.</p>
