In addition to being a very personal experience, writing about yourself can be just plain hard. How personal do you get? How much do you share? Is there anything about me that's really all that interesting? Where do I even begin?
These are all common questions shared by our past MSL guests; while many of them could go on and on about a particular interest or passion, we all hit a wall when it comes to sharing our own stories.
At MSL, we believe that overcoming this hurdle is an important part of building a stronger dialog on our perspectives, our beliefs, and our experiences to meet our mission of shaping the world through shared stories. To get you started on the path to exploring yours, we've created the following "Story Builder". Sketch it out on a sheet of paper or, if you'd like to submit it for consideration as an upcoming guest piece, fill out the sections below and click submit (while all submissions are read, not all posts are selected).
Even on a familiar road, there's nothing wrong with seeking a helping hand.
