November is better known for Movember, National Novel Writing Month and
Black Friday Thanksgiving. But it's also National Lifewriting Month, a time to engage in journaling, memoir-writing and other forms of chronicling your existence. Whoa.
There's a handy tool to help you tell your own story: The 5 Facts of Fiction®, created by my husband, Steve Peha of Teaching That Makes Sense, Inc. He built it to help kids write better narratives and dissect the fiction they read. But it's actually an awesome tool for writing about yourself (here's why). Just change "Fiction" to "My Life" and make yourself the character. Boom!
