Narratives, mini-biographies: Drawing conclusions about the franchise hurricane.

Writing:

  • so common
  • so important
  • so neglected as a way up

Writing is very powerful.

The act of facing down a screen or (better yet) a blank piece of paper and trying to collect your thoughts is an important stage for everyone who somehow thinks their life has been swept up, like in a tornado.

Face that page.

Write your story. My dealings with franchisee families is that they are master verbal storytellers. Put it in writing so your partner, children, family and friends can share it with you.

With words, you’ll be able to draw your own life out and then up. Your life is a work of art, in some sense, isn’t it? All of it: even (maybe especially) the parts that hurt like hell.

  • By your own hands :: with help from those you trust.

A written narrative integrates so you can cast off the prolonged heaviness that accompanies loss.

Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere. G.K. Chesterton
