But I Can’t Draw

A Pen In Each Hand

By Beaver

Choose an event in your life that has been difficult for you to write about. Maybe you have avoided writing about it, or maybe you have tried and weren’t happy with how it turned out. Be honest with yourself about why writing about this subject is difficult. Are you afraid of repercussions? Maybe writing pseudonymously would free you up. Does the idea of reliving the experience scare you? Perhaps writing in third person or fictionalizing the event might make it easier. Focus on just one scene and try approaching it in two or three different ways. Make sure to try at least one strategy that either you haven’t tried before and/or you think would never work for you.
