“Nobody will read my stories.” Hogwash!

"Nobody will read my stories." Hogwash!

Porch Swing Tip of the Week: “Nobody will read my stories.” Hogwash!
If you’ve thought about writing your life stories, but a negative voice in your head-the one that sounds like Winnie the Pooh’s donkey friend, Eeyore- just keeps saying things like, “Nobody will read my stories,” or “I really don’t have the time,” or “I’m not a trained writer or an English major,” well, then we say, “Balderdash!” “Fiddlesticks!”

The people who love you will certainly want to read the stories that show how you came to be the way you are. If this project is important to you, some other busy-ness can take a backseat for a while so you can have the time and space to preserve the account of your life. And if you think you might need some help, we are all over that! The story prompt questions on your Porch Swing StorySite, as well a our story coaches and editors, will inspire, stimulate, and encourage you from start to finish. We want you to succeed!

(If you want a good laugh, look up synonyms for “hogwash” in a thesaurus, and say them to the Eeyore in your head next time he tries to discourage you. “That’s flapdoodle!”)
