I wasn’t sure what I’d write about when I first saw the topic. In the book it talked about “But from grade school to college, most students would tell him that they didn’t have permission to write about themselves; the teachers gave them the subjects to write about. Established writers would tell him they had to write what editors wanted. If this has a familiar ring to you, or if you feel you need permission to write about yourself or whatever you need to write about, I give you permission. Now you have it. Use it.”
I thought this was interesting. It’s so true that throughout most of our life, both in childhood and in our adult years, we’re told what to write, how to write, and many times even how long it should be.
When we write about ourselves we have to realize that we can do what we like and how we’d like to do it. Talk about freedom. It’s an awesome feeling.
I feel blessed to be able to do this.
