None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

In this class each student writes the vignettes that are important to the story that needs to be told. We begin with turning point stories, stories that are most significant on the timeline, and write those first. My suggestion is to go with the “fire in the belly” approach—what is there that is commanding your attention.
We frequently discuss and try to disable the power of the inner critic that blocks us from writing in the fullness of our feelings. Some writers in the class are beginning, others have written for a while, and each person is on a quest to find the meaningful stories that are part of their spiritual journey.
