Description

How do you write about trauma without re-traumatizing yourself? Now MORE THAN EVER before we need to hear the stories of those who’ve faced life’s sh!t and come through it with wisdom and resilience and strength! We collectively need to know that, as Glennon Doyle says, we can “do hard things,” and come out the other side with the capacity to thrive.

You know you’ve got a story to write, right? Whether it’s something you’ve been through yourself or a theme you’re exploring in fiction, you’ve got something to say.

But you may also fear that delving into that writing and telling THAT story might BREAK YOUR HEART.

Writing your truth doesn’t have to wreck you, Dear One. Undertaken with the proper parameters and with the right roadmap, you can write your hard story, offer the gift of your wisdom to your readers, and even HEAL yourself as you go.
