From Dennis Lowery
We breathe shallow
When we should breathe deep
When we should stand
Our dreams lay fallow
But they are ours to keep
The time is at hand
And breathe deep

Dennis Lowery: On Writing About Your Life... Your Story | How to start, plan and organize your memoir or story
This is not a guide to teach you how to become a writer. There are countless books, courses, articles and websites that can help you with that. They can teach you proper grammar, structure and even how to format your manuscript for publication. Those are all things that come with having a rough draft to polish and make pretty. This IS a guide to help you make actual progress and do what needs to come first—the most important step you must take if you want to write your story. Creating a first draft (the rough draft you can then begin to make pretty and polished).
I write in a handful of genres--and sometimes my stories spread across them. I also post eclectic musings about my worldview on life, tips on writing, and publishing. I occasionally use coarse language but not to offend by gratuitous use but rather for emphasis. Included among my posts and writings will be occasional plugs for my business, my books and my client's books. I reserve that right--hey it's my blog!
