It’s Time to Tell Your Story

by Sheralyn

As a writer, there is one thing I know for certain: There are far too many stories in the world for me to even tell on my own.

Your story is one of them, yet so many people decide they either don’t have the skill or aren’t important enough to have their story told.

Hogwash.

I’m creating a series of journals that are going to help turn you into an expert storyteller so you can share those stories that are just waiting to get out.

I’m also creating a podcast to give instruction and answer questions as we go.

Listen to episode 1 here.

Listen to episode 2 here.

There will be several journals that will go along with this project. Each is designed to gather information you can use to remember and retell events with an accuracy that lures your reader in to your story and keeps them reading.

The first journal is the Days of Change journal. If you don’t have it, grab it now.

There’s never been a better time to write your story. So get the tools you need and let’s get started!

Days of Change (OUTOT #1)

by Sheralyn

I’ve published over a dozen books but I have never been more excited about a book I’ve created than I am for the Once Upon This One Time (OUTOT or #OUTOT) journal series I’ve bringing your way now.

I firmly believe it is time for people to tell their stories, which is a daunting task for many.

Where do you start? What do you say? What do you include? What do you leave on the cutting-room floor?

I’m going to help you with all this, but you’re going to need some information first — information only you know, and it needs to be stored in ways that you can find and record easily.

That’s what the Once Upon This One Time journal series is all about: Capturing events in ways that make it easy to write about later.

The first journal in the series is: DAYS OF CHANGE. This is a journal you ONLY write in when you experience a notable change in your life. When that happens, you fill in a one-sheet in the journal and that’s it.

Do this each time you have a big change and soon you will have a book that is filled only with days when your “normal” changed into something new, allowing you to see some of the influential days in your life in sequence.

Other journals will record other things, making everything easy to find when it’s time to write your story and I’ll be guiding and sharing things I’ve learned with you along the way.

And I am looking forward to helping you write your story in a captivating way that family, friends, and strangers will love to read.

Return of the Story Problem

by Sheralyn

I was playing around with the idea of creating fun tools to help with at-home learning.

Obviously, I would need to upgrade the art and video elements. This is just a concept test with a question: Would story problems like this be a fun way to help your kids/students learn at home?
