 Testimonials: The ExpertRating Online Life Story Writing Course has received overwhelming positive feedback and reviews from students around the world. Here are a few:

"After 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."

"Another 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."

"As 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."

"A wonderful class, a superb instructor."

"Eva: 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!"

"Eva 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."

"Eva, 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."

"Eva Shaw is a phenomenal instructor. Her warmth & caring comes across even in an on-line course. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, & would highly recommend it to others."

"Eva Shaw's enthusiasm for Writing is clear. Her lessons and feedback were always informative and encouraging. I enjoyed this course very much-- thanks a million!"

"Eva Shaw was a delight and I found her course uplifting, full of good information and references, and just like talking with a new friend over coffee. Very personal and friendly."

"Eva Shaw was not only an excellent instructor but also compassionate towards the students. She worked to bring the best out of all of us."

"Eva, Thanks for all the wonderful resources on the internet and the books. It is just great. Well worth the money. I am truly satisfied with everything in this class."

Eva, 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 next assignment, and encouraging them to continue through all the obstacles they 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 Best Seller's List for all of your Life Stories. Take care!"

"Eva took care to respond to all discussion area questions and give positive and helpful comments. Really enjoyed this class a lot."

"Eva was wonderful in offering students help and resource information. I felt she was actually a part of us in the class. She did not serve as an instructor alone but as a friend as well."

"Eva: You are a top-notch instructor. Eva, thanks for knowing and openly saying what needed to be done without being critical, but encouraging with a gentle nudge. Your techniques are the best, again thank you all for a successful learning experience."

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of writers and editors is expected to grow 10 percent, or about as fast as the average for all occupations, from 2006 to 2016.

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)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Has 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 empower yourself.

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.

Week Two

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 reader.

Friday - Lesson 04

This 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 world.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

When 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 with—these topics.

Friday - Lesson 06

In 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.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

This 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

In 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.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

If 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 you’re saying.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Do 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.

Friday - Lesson 12

When one first begins writing, the hardest part is to gently but relentlessly edit one’s own work before sharing it with others. Often, in the desire to create golden words—you know, the ones that are too beautiful to cut out of a manuscript—one have to sacrifice entire paragraphs. Of course, after one tries to rework his/or her writing, one always discovers that the golden words had to go. In this lesson, you'll learn how professional writers self edit and what they do to make their writing sing. This lesson will also talk about selecting titles and including supplemental material—focusing on the extras that could make your book visually appealing. And finally, this lesson will discuss how to work with groups and when to share your work.
