During this process, it’s imperative that you don’t censor yourself. Set a timer for 10 minutes, and just write. Don’t take the pen off the paper. Let yourself be surprised. Know that no one will see it. Say something to yourself you haven’t dared to speak until This Moment.
Take 30 minutes and sit. Let yourself write the it down. Write in whatever form: bullet points, a poem, short pieces of prose… Write what comes about the CENTRAL MOMENT of this powerful event or truth in your life. During this central moment, where are you? What time of year is it? What are you wearing? What does the air smell like? Who is with you? What music do you hear?
Step five: Perform! Take your due on stage, strut your stuff, and tell your story for real–be the most you-est you you’ve ever been, share your story in a way that lets the audience fully see who you really are. (Hint: the less you care how good you are, the better you’ll be.)
