My life as a work of Fiction Course

MY LIFE AS A WORK OF FICTION: Imagining our stories

We all have unfinished business. We lie awake at night, not knowing how to proceed in a difficulty, our thoughts looping. We have done everything we can to try to resolve a seemingly insoluble problem. Writing can be helpful, bringing new information to the surface, changing anxiety into curiosity, and providing relief and well-being. We will start by identifying core conflicts in your life. These can feel too intransigent or overwhelming to write as memoir, or you might just want to explore them using a different tool. Giving the dilemma to fictional characters can provide the distance you need to expand and intensify the dramatic tensions, and to let the story unfold.

Imagination can switch off the rational, list-making, treadmill mind, allowing what we don’t know we don’t know about the situation to emerge.

You are welcome to stay with writing memoir as a means to explore and deepen your inquiry into the themes that bind your life. Beginner writers are welcome.
