Nearly if not all my writing is from my own personal experiences and insights into life. I find that my writing flows a lot better from my subconscious mind onto paper or in this case onto the keyboard. I don’t have to stop and start, while having to lookup something or verifying some kind of research.
Everyone has a wealth of personal experiences that they can tap into, because of the very reason it is personal you don’t necessary need to have facts behind them, all you have to do is document your experiences from your own personal view point. This approach allows me to write freely and without any interruptions. Take a look at your life and list your personal experiences that you have had, they don’t necessary have to be huge, long experiences, just something that you can write about easily. Here are some examples of what I write about from my personal experiences:
I love personal development, I have read hundreds of books on personal development, so I have a wealth of experience in this area and it’s a genre that I am drawn to.
Because I write, I can identify myself with other writers and the problems that they face. Although there are many different types of writing, I chose to focus on personal writing, allowing me a path to self expression about my personal experiences.
Of course there are many experiences that I have had in my life that are not included in the above list. The point is that everyone has personal experiences that they can draw from. Because the source of my writing is from my own personal experiences, there is no right or wrong just your own opinion about your personal experiences.
Writing from the own experiences can leave vulnerable, in the sense that you are sharing your life experiences with the world, which can leave you open to criticism. The way that I have handled this is to accept that I am not perfect and nobody else is either. Through accepting my imperfections, my vulnerability becomes a source of strength.
Start writing now from your own personal experiences and you will find that the ideas will flow easily and fluidly.
