10 Impactful Memoir-Writing Prompts for Healing and Transformation.

It’s time to stop waiting and get started!

Hi there!

My name is Janelle and I help people like you write their memoirs, reclaim their lives and reconnect with their bodies so they can feel at ease with their life and their stories.

A few years ago I was frustrated and pent-up, overwhelmed with desire to write, create and heal, but locked up so tightly with creative block that any little thing would tip me into overwhelm and despair.

This uncomfortable state remained until I started reclaiming my stories.

Amazingly, my creativity unblocked, my writing flourished and my healing path laid itself out before me with the support of my wise and ever-present body.

Now I feel transformed. I’m connected to my creative process and the guidance of my body. I feel at ease in the world, owning my lifestories, telling them, and celebrating them.

I can’t wait to help you feel this way too!

You may have heard me on these podcasts:

If you’re tired of feeling overwhelmed and fed up with ignoring this burning desire to heal by reclaiming your stories and experiences, you’re not alone.

If you’re stuck trying to work with your lifestory and write your memoir, and you’ve tried various different healing modalities and just-push-through-it techniques before but haven’t been able to stick with it, I totally understand!

If you’re hurting and you don’t know how to start feeling better, writing is a powerful path towards healing.

You want to embrace your life instead of shutting down, you want to be able to face your past and stop ignoring the painful parts of your life, you want to live without all the stress of just coping, you want more ease and less overwhelm and you want to find acceptance and even joy in your life as it is.

You want to own your story, tell your story, embody your story.

So that’s why I’ve put together 10 Impactful Memoir Writing Prompts for Healing and Transformation.

These are simple, powerful and enjoyable writing prompts, so you can finally start!
