Great Point, WSJ
The Wall Street Journal ran a really good article in November about how beneficial life story writing is for you - even if you don't plan on selling a million copies of your book to the public.
The article, written by Lisa Ward, describes how the writing review process can allow the writer to make sense of their life, come to terms with past traumatic experience, and foster personal growth.
Dan McAdams, Professor of Psychology at Northwestern University, adds that writers can benefit also because they often unearth life writing narratives during the writing process (common themes and threads that lead from one life event to another).
And he asserts that focusing on overcoming adversity is especially beneficial to memoir writers.
Sharing your memoir in limited circles can also be therapeutic, because it can strengthen social ties and help family and friends to understand the writer better.
We have seen that demonstrated many times, and hundreds of studies have proven it.
Life story writing connects the 3 generations and is beneficial to the writer, their family/friends, and our society.
That's the primary reason why we created The Life Writer app: so it could help so many people and families.
- - - Great point, Wall Street Journal (and Lisa Ward).
Thank you for illuminating those real-world benefits of life story writing.
