a BA, three Masters and many CE classes, I can honestly say this was one of the
best classes I have ever taken. Thank you, Eva, for your insights, your
encouragement, and for just being who you are. This class has prompted me to
begin to put onto paper many of the things I have always wanted to write down,
and I am finding that "the truth is setting me free." I am finally beginning to
put together a legacy for my daughters, that will allow them to see who I really
am, and Eva, I have you to thank for that."
wonderful class have ended, but, the stories have only just began. Eva, you are
a master at bringing out the best in your students. Thank you."
a senior citizen, I was a bit hesitant about an Internet class. I shouldn't have
been. This has been my first Internet class and you have contributed to making
it a lot easier than I thought it would be. I would have loved to meet you face
to face, without that though, meeting you here was a joy for me. Thank you."
wonderful class, a superb instructor."
As a counselor, I share the same feelings you mention when one of my clients is
ready to launch on their own. As your student, I am very grateful for the
instruction you provided and for the words of encouragement. I wouldn't have
believed it possible that I could have formed an attachment via an online course
but I have. Thank you!"
has been the best writing instructor I've ever had, always providing positive
guidance without any form of discouragement. A simple "nudge" here and "let me
point you in this direction" etc., is quite refreshing from an instructor
instead of the raw criticisms that may hinder one's goal to write and share a
personal life story. Thank you Eva and thank you classmates."
I appreciate this class for giving me tools and guided practice in using them.
The class has me already stimulated to frame certain memories and take notes as
triggered by lessons, assignments, and discussions."

on-line course. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, & would highly recommend it to

Thanks so much for all the great info on how to write your life story. I hope to
keep with it and get it all on paper. But, I see I am not alone when it comes to
falling behind. You have a great way of getting the student excited about the

may come across. To all my fellow writers out there, I wish you well, continue
to follow your heart all the way to the written page. I'll be looking on the

Writing your life
story or writing your autobiography are similar terms with a little
difference. An autobiography can either be written by you or in
collaboration with a professional writer. Writing your own life
story implies completely relying on your own memory to write the biography unlike the
biographers who rely on documents and other people’s opinions to
write a life story. Writing your life story entails
mentioning important things like who you are, what is the meaning of
life for you and what you think about the future.
Writing your life story means that the
story will be full of facts and it can include interesting anecdotes
to make the write-up an enjoyable experience for the reader. The
ExpertRating Write your Life Story course will equip
you to write your life story like a pro.
ExpertRating Online Life Story Writing Course
Coverage (6 weeks program)
Wednesday - Lesson 01
anyone ever told you that you have
an incredible life or asked if
you've written your life story? Are
there things that you want to put in
print for yourself, your loved ones,
or the reading public? If so, then
this is the class for you! In this
first lesson, you'll discover why
only you can write your life story,
how to give yourself permission to
do it, and explore some ways to
Friday - Lesson 02
Where should you start? The
beginning might not be the
correct answer. That's the focus
of this lesson. This lesson will
also talk about becoming an
observer of yourself and others
around you. The instructor
hereby gives you permission to
ask questions and eavesdrop on
conversations (without being
rude, of course). What direction
will you take with writing about
your life? Will it be a
book-length memoir or a
collection of shorter essays?
This lesson will explore the
endless possibilities and why
you don't have to make any
decisions just yet.
Wednesday - Lesson 03
Writing a life story is like
making a pot of vegetable soup.
You assemble all the
ingredients, chopping some or
maybe shelling fresh peas and
peeling carrots. Then you find a
pot that's the right size and
begin putting the ingredients in
it. Next comes the waiting part.
You must simmer the soup for a
while or it won't be soup—just
cold water with raw vegetables.
Right now, your life story might
be just that—a bunch of
ingredients that you need to
assemble and let simmer. So,
this lesson will talk about how
to select the right ingredients
for cooking up a life story that
will satisfy you and your
Friday - Lesson 04
lesson will talk about the people
who have been in your life and
discuss their influence on you. In
order to spark your memory and to
pull these influential people into
your story, you'll fill out
character sketches on each person.
You might even discover some things
about yourself as you reflect on
those who have been a part of your
Wednesday - Lesson 05-
you write your life story, you'll be
revealing yourself. You may share
moments few know about. You'll tell
your side of events, adventures, and
episodes. You'll make judgments,
you'll give opinions, you'll speak
out, and you may allow others to see
sides of you that have never been
revealed. This lesson will talk
about—perhaps even wrestle
Friday - Lesson 06
this lesson you'll learn quick,
easy, and virtually guaranteed
methods to spark memories. You'll do
this by investigating your senses
and your memories. This might
include looking at photographs,
going to movies, or even eating
comfort foods from your past.
Wednesday - Lesson 07
lesson will continue to focus on how
to jog memories and find creative
inspiration. First, it will talk
about writing in a journal. By the
time this course is over, your
writer's journal will be your new
best friend. If you're serious about
writing the stories in your life,
you will need time to do it. So this
lesson will also cover time
management. You'll learn where to
find writing time and when may be
the most creative times for working
on your life story.
Friday - Lesson 08
this lesson, you'll learn ways to
preserve your story, your own
history. It will talk about how to
capture your writer's voice or the
voice of the person you're writing
about. Everyone has a unique speech
pattern and word selection. Your job
is to discover these voices and
include them in your writing. It
will also go over how to get ready
to interview others for information
and how to fill in the blanks you
may have in your own story. Then,
this lesson will discuss how to find
information you need through
research. The challenge and fun of
writing life stories is to write
them as if you're sitting across a
table from your reader, telling the
tales. In this lesson, you'll find
out how to do it.
Wednesday - Lesson 09
you write, at some point you'll have
to get information from another
person. This is especially true when
you're writing your life story. So,
this entire lesson will be devoted
to interviewing. It is obvious that
all the information is in your head.
Or is it? Let's say you want to
include how you and a grandparent
share the same features, or so
you've been told. By interviewing a
friend or relative who also knew
this person, you can get many more
details. That's what interviewing is
all about—asking questions to get
information. And if you're helping
another person write a life story,
most of the information you get will
be through interviews.
Friday - Lesson 10
Location, location, location! You
need to clearly describe the details
of the locations in your life story.
In this lesson, you'll learn
professional ways to describe your
location so that it jumps off the
page. You'll gather up the tools to
make your story shine. Yes, it's all
in the details. In addition, this
lesson will teach you how to create
a mental picture of a typical
reader. You'll find out why, as you
write your life story, it's smart to
concentrate on this person and make
sure he or she understands what
Wednesday - Lesson 11
you need to know about grammar to
write your life story? If you've
wondered that, you can breathe
easier because in this lesson,
you'll get a quick review of the
grammar you need to know and some
tips to make it all much easier.
Really. Then, because writer's block
is real, pesky, and tends to destroy
even the most hopeful writer, this
lesson will take it head on. You'll
discover the trick to dealing with
this creative brain slow down:
staying focused while giving your
mind some serious down time. That
doesn't mean you should give up your
project or put it on hold. Just take
some time out. In this lesson,
you'll find the answers to questions
that may have plagued you in the
past and stopped you from writing.
