Chronicling Life Moments

CREATIVE WRITING Chronicling significant moments of our lives is to make use of pen and paper to record events and experiences along with the thoughts, emotions and impact surrounding them. This type of personal accountability can be a tool for self-reflection that allows us to shape vague and amorphous recollections into concrete and coherent language. It is a way to organize, prioritize and find an outlet for the pivotal events that have shaped our choices and, by extension, the course of our lives.

“Why does anybody tell a story? It does indeed have something to do with faith, faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically.” — Madeleine L’Engle, author
