FINDING OUR WORDS: An excerpt from THE STORY YOU NEED TO TELL by Sandra Marinella
By Publicity Admin

A practical and inspiring guide to transformational personal storytelling, The Story You Need to Tell: Writing to Heal from Trauma, Illness, or Loss, is the product of author Sandra Marinella’s pioneering work with veterans and cancer patients, her years of teaching writing, and her research into its profound healing properties. 

In this excerpt from the book, Marinella shares a story that illustrates her methods for understanding, telling, and editing personal stories in ways that foster resilience and renewal, unraveling “the knot inside” to make sense of loss. We hope reading this excerpt will inspire you to find your own words to tell your unique story.

WILD VOICE: WRITING WITH AUTHENTIC EXPRESSION by guest blogger Judy Reeves, author of WILD WOMEN, WILD VOICES
By Samy AbulEla

Every writer has a beautiful, authentic, wild voice. This is where we start early on, using our imagination and our natural wildness to express the stories our creative minds conjure. Then something happens: we’re taught the correct way to make a sentence, we learn the rules of grammar, which, of course, we do need to know, and slowly all that correctness begins to outweigh imagination. We learn what others (teachers, parents, authorities) want to hear and, over time, allow our wild voice to be tamed. We become cautious and self-conscious, and writing doesn’t hold the magic it had once upon a time.

WRITING WITH NATURE by guest blogger Tina Welling, author of WRITING WILD
By Samy AbulEla

Ralph Metzner, in his book Green Psychology: Transforming Our Relationship to the Earth, discovered that tuning in to each of the four elements of nature — air, earth, fire, water — produces an experience of consciousness that is associated with the qualities of that element.

He didn’t exactly have writers in mind when he put forth this idea, but, since I’m a writer, that’s how I translated his work, and I think it’s a valuable tool for writers. When we align ourselves with the element of nature that meets our writing needs, we dip into a vast inventory of inspiration and insight.

GETTING UNBLOCKED FROM WRITER’S BLOCK by guest blogger Denise Jaden, author of Fast Fiction
By Samy AbulEla

Most writers have probably felt as though they’ve been “blocked” or stuck for words at one time or another, so if this is something you struggle with, you’re not alone. However, I believe that writer’s block can be solved quite easily by trying these simple practices:

1. Change your perspective. Writer’s block really isn’t about being unable to write. Have your hands and fingers seized up? Even if they have, you likely have a voice recorder on your phone that you could use. You see, writer’s block isn’t about your inability to write; it’s only about your anticipated inability to write well. Every writer has bad days when their writing isn’t great. This is normal, and it will not last forever, as long as you keep pressing on. Give yourself permission to write poorly for the next week, and I’ll bet you’ll be finding glimmers of greatness within your writing again in no time.
