CATAPULT 6-Week In-Person Workshop (NYC): Creating a Narrative Arc Out of a Messy Life (July 15-August 19)
Creating a satisfying narrative arc out of your own life story is so difficult, partly because you're still living it. How do you write a story where there is no real "end," and when life doesn't actually develop in a series of "aha!" moments? There’s a certain amount of translation necessary to condense a sliver of the messy, complex, ongoing story of your life into something that fits into one book, and feels satisfyingly narrative to a reader.
