Someday I Will Write
You do have a story to tell, but where and how do you begin?
Studies show that 82% of the population dreams of someday writing a book. Sadly, many people die with their story still inside them. The secret to getting started is simply beginning with what you have.
Ten years ago, author Debra Irene began telling stories about everyday life—the past and the present. In Someday I Will Write, Debra brings these stories together for readers to find hope along life’s journey and for writers to find strength in their writing quest. From a brief vignette or poem of 150 words to a dialogued short story of 2000 words, you will discover how different genres create powerful images in the mind of the reader.
Your stories and the topics will be different, but finding time to tell what is on your heart is the key. In this book, you will discover how to:
- tell your stories with passion and authenticity,
- finish your book amidst the distractions of life, and
- fulfill your dream and impact lives.
MAKE YOUR SOMEDAY TODAY!
What was it like to be born in the depression era and to grow up the youngest of sixteen children in a poor family in rural Missouri? What was it like to be separated from your mother as a young toddler, to be without her daily nurturing and yet have deep spiritual roots and an overall strong family base? How do you carve out your own journey? And then, when your journey is over, what heritage have you left for your descendants? Will they know about the struggles and the victories on earth? Will they know about the promise of an eternal home? Will they know the family stories, those jewels locked up in time?
Helen decided not to keep those jewels to herself. Instead, she unlocked the treasure box, opened it wide, and documented it all for the generations to come. Come and read her stories. Learn of her heritage, the one on earth and the one for eternity.
Life is full of choices—choices that determine our path. Sometimes we know when we are at a defining moment, a crossroad, and the choice we make will change or set our course. Much of our life, however, is simply “staying the course” through the good times and the not-so-good times. If we take time to reflect, we grow to appreciate the individuals who influenced our life when we needed to change and the ones who were there when we were simply living out our life. In the midst of these times, did we notice a higher power at work as well?
So grab a cup of coffee or a glass of tea; sit by the fire, on a park bench, or in your favorite chair; and reflect with the storyteller as she introduces you to family, friends, and faith. She will draw you into these true tales throughout her journey marked with laughter and tears.
