“When I went through dark moments as a teenager, I wasn’t sure who to share my experiences with. This was when I embraced writing.
The page has been my closest friend: Listening in eager silence as I vented, allowing space for me to think through potential solutions, always patient, accepting and kind.
Today, writing is my vocation. I write for Our Daily Bread, Highly Sensitive Refuge, Introvert Dear, and Pippa Rann Books. While I write to empower others, part of me still writes to be heard, to learn and to heal.” – Ann Harikeerthan
Write the Real You is an expansion of this experience.
It aims to be a safe space where you can introspect, understand yourself better, own your experiences and retell your stories in the most empowering way possible. It helps you heal a little through the wisdom of your own words.
We help you do 4 things so that you can Write the Real You:
1. Introspect: We believe that most of the answers you seek are within you. We’re just here to help you tune in to yourself. We help you by asking you questions that inspire you to think.
2. Understand Yourself: The more you introspect, the more you will understand yourself. You’ll begin to see more of who you truly are, what matters to you, what you’re good at doing and where you need to grow.
3. Own Your Experiences: When we think, we are sure to remember difficult things that we have lived through. At Write the Real You, we help you notice your strength, resilience and creativity that helped you take those challenges and build something beautiful with them.
4. Retell Your Stories: We are the narrators of our experiences. We have the power to talk about what we’ve lived through in ways that empower us or put us down. At Write the Real You, we help you retell your stories such that they build you up and encourage your audience.
Through it all, and in every session, we offer TONS of encouragement and love.
Is Write the Real You for you?
Write the Real You is for you if you want to write your thoughts down and would like a community of people rooting for you as you do.
You don’t have to be a writer to join Write the Real You!
Maybe you just want a space to explore your thoughts. If so, Write the Real You is right for you. Some of our writing is aimed at helping us heal. It’s like journaling. The words you write could be for your eyes alone.
But maybe you also have ideas that you want to share with the world. At Write the Real You, you’ll learn how to keep your audience interested in what you have to say. We can also help you get your writing published and seen.
Or maybe you want to get word out about the kind of work you’re doing. At Write the Real You, you’ll also learn how to write to promote your work in a gentle and generous way.
Storyboard is a 90-minute one-to-one session.
You can use it to talk about anything you need sorted. It could be to help you get started with writing or to deal with something that’s stopping you from writing. It could be a chat to help you think about who you are and what stories to tell. Or a strategy session to figure out how to draw your ideal client to yourself. Whatever it is, this one-to-one session is a great starting point.
Join the Community:
Writing can feel like a lonely pursuit. But at Write the Real You there’s a community of writers (hobbyists and professionals) meeting, writing and growing together. We meet once a week and talk about storytelling, poetry, writing on social media and writing to heal. Each session, we learn a little, write together and, if we’re up for it, share what we’ve written. In our community we offer gentle feedback and lots and lots of encouragement to nurture the sensitive soul of the writer. You will also get access to a bank of recordings of previous sessions to help you hone your craft.
