Find Your Voice Weeks 2 & 3

Guys, I am so behind on the Find Your Voice workshop.

Last week, I thought that I would have time to work on week two and have a post up while I was in Texas. That didn't happen. Then I thought I would be able to work on weeks two and three yesterday and have both results of my assignments up this morning. That didn't happen either.

I even think this post got published before I started typing this. Ooops.

I have been working on the Find Your Voice Assignments though. My journal has been by my side for the last two weeks as I've been going through the worksheets and learning more about myself and the way I tell stories.

While I'm working on my final products for the last two weeks of Find Your Voice... here is a quick recap of what's been covered so far. 

Week one was about what we like about storytelling, what appeals to us, an introduction to storytelling, etc. You can read the results of week one here

Week two was about find out who I was as a person. This was perfect reflection for me as I came back from Texas with the teenagers. So many of the themes we talked about all week were about identity and learning who we are. Trips like that I always learn more about myself, so it was awesome to have a chance to really flesh out my thoughts in my journal and write it all down. 

Week three (this week) was for mapping out my storytelling goals. What do I want in life and how does creating and storytelling fit in? This was more of a challenge for me. I'm awful at making goals and putting together a plan for my life. Planning for youth events - that's fine. My life and creativity? That's a totally different story. I'm still working on some of the prompts and worksheet questions for this week, but I think I have a good start so far.

Hopefully by next week I'll have more results to share with you all and actual completed projects. Hang in there with me!

I'll be gone at camp this week - but don't worry! I have posts scheduled for the rest of the week and some guests stopping by to say hi. :-) I am still needing a couple of guest bloggers for the last week of July if anyone is interested.


  1. I am interested in guest posting, I just don't know about what, so if you have a subject in mind - lemme know!!!

    I had a hard-ish time with week two, yet week three was SO easy for me. I love anything that deals with creativity and goals. You know you have support right here, and if you ever need to chat about the workshop, brainstorm an idea, etc. just lemme know! (Or anything else, for that matter. ^_^)

    1. That would be awesome! And you can post about whatever your heart desires. But if you need ideas let me know and I'll brainstorm some while I'm at camp this week. :)

      And I might need to do some tossing around of ideas for FYV. Making goals and stuff... I'm so bad at it!

  2. Good luck with this project! It sounds like a great time to reflect :-). Have a good time at camp!

    1. Thanks! Hopefully I'll be able to work on it a bit more now that I'm home for a couple weeks.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
