Life can feel like a blur when we're busy living it. Likewise, the stories from our life can feel blurry or overwhelming when we try to write them. I created the One-Moment Memoirs writing workshop to give you a process to cut through the clutter and focus on your stories, moment by moment. The live workshop is happening tomorrow (January 24), Noon-3pm (EST).
And if you can't make it live, no problem: Everyone who registers will receive a recording of the calls.
(UPDATE JAN. 25: The call recordings are now available. If you register now, you will receive all class materials, the recordings, and access to the online class community, which will remain open until Feb. 21.)
I love the above quote from Annie Dillard. It reminds me that days add up to a life, which encourages me to make time for what matters to me. One of the things that matters deeply to me is writing, but I often struggle to make time for it. I can't control everything about my days, but I can consciously choose to come back to the page again and again. I can create a writing practice and do my best to stick with it. I can capture the moments of my days, and the days of my life, in words. I invite you to do the same: Make time (tomorrow or another day) to write. Make time dive into the stories of your life. Make time to tell them.

If I could give you one thing to help you tell the stories of your life, it would be the unique step-by-step process that I share in this class.
One-Moment Memoirs (OMM) is a series of writing exercises designed to help you discover and write the stories of your life. This hands-on workshop will help you take a relaxed, yet focused, approach to telling life's big and small stories in bite-sized pieces.
In this hands-on class, you'll be guided through an easy step-by-step writing exercise that is designed to help you discover your life's "writable moments" so that you can start writing immediately.
All of the course details and registration for OMM are over here. I would be delighted if you joined us.
What People Are Saying About OMM...
"This was so much fun! The writing prompts in OMM helped me to come up with new angles on stories I've been wanting to tell but haven't quite known where to begin. I'm excited and inspired to go write now, for sure. " (Liz Lamoreux)

"I am not a writer, but I do have a story. Jenna uses simple prompts that speak to the ordinary person who wants to warm up their story journey. I always seem to be tense when I first sit down to write, but using the prompts and Jenna's encouragement, I could feel myself opening, and the words began to flow. That is what I love about Jenna and how she shares her knowledge. OMM is a happy way to get back to your story." (Kelly Barton, artist)

"All my life, I've wanted to write, but I was either too confused about where to start or too frustrated after just a few paragraphs. The process you teach in OMM has enabled me to move past the confusion and the frustration. For the first time in my life, I feel like I can tell my story. This process is amazing! Thank you so much for this!" (James S.)
