Excavate the gold in your story. Take the time to write down your thoughts.
What genre is your story? Drama? Romance? Horror? Tragedy? A comedy of errors? How did your story impact you? How did it inform your point of view, first of yourself and then of the world? Where and how did you deviate from the original narrative?
When did you become the co-creator. and where were you living our your part in the family/culture story?
