Yes, I have a story to tell, but what story? which story? what angle?
The same event can be written as
- tragedy where I am victim (and I’ve told lots of those stories);
- inspirational (I was in a pit and God delivered me, yes I can say that);
- victory where I am the hero (yes, that’s a fun way to frame my life);
- comedy where life is truly absurd and I’m caught in it (think Mr. Bean);
- narrative (“The facts, Ma’am, just the facts”); see my history posts;
- instructive (this happened and I learned and now I’m telling you);
- so any blog might be a mix-up of all the above themes.
