Encouraging others to write about their life experiences is an easy thing to do. Taking the time to listen to others and find interest in their back story, the details that lead to the person they’ve become, is all it really takes. Once you find that they’re path was different than the average person it only takes a moment to point that out to them. It’s so easy to become complacent in our own experiences that we don’t even realize the value that someone else may see. Some people, of course, know their path has been extraordinary yet they don’t realize that may be inspired by those paths. To every writer, it is important to encourage others and continue to enrich the quilt of available stories.
