Letter Writing Exercise to free the story within you.

Choose an event from your past. Write a letter to someone you know and tell them about the event. Address the letter Dear ____, then begin to tell your story. Consider the person you are addressing, and tell the story as you would tell it to them in person. Explain to them why it’s important to you that you’re telling them this story. This personalizes the story and makes it familiar to you and your reader.

Once you’ve written your letter sit back and take a deep breath. Let the breath out slowly. How do you feel about telling this story to this specific person? Did you let it all hang out or were you holding things back? Would you have told the story differently if it were someone else you were writing the letter to?
