As a first step, I invite you to briefly reflect on what help you require, and why you want to write your story:
- Do you want to write your life story generally, or about a specific part of your life such as a relationship, career or travel, or about an illness or traumatic experience? Do you have a special message to deliver?
- Do you need help getting started? Have you accomplished some initial work and seek advice on how to proceed?
- Have you completed your work and want to refine it, for your own satisfaction, or perhaps you want to obtain advice on sharing your story with others?
- Why do you want to write your story and who is your envisaged audience?
- How do you plan to share your story? Online, self-publish as an e-book, or paperback? Or submit your manuscript to a publisher?
- What kind of mentoring are you looking for? For emotional support, writing skills, editing expertise?
