Gadanke Workshop Course
23 Write about someone you admire31 March, 2015 by Katie
Who do you admire, love, or strive to be like? Write a piece of her story. Then take her actions, values, and bravery, and translate them into your own life.
Imagine writing the stories of six people you admire and how they've touched you and inspired you. Document people from history, your family, famous folks today, or even the kind person down the street from you. Won't this be a cool collection?!
It's a salute to ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
To start off, I'm going to show you how I'm journaling about one of my all-time heroes, Jeanette Rankin. (She was the first female in the US Congress, four years before women could vote!)
I'm also going to show you some writing tricks, like making your handwritten words stand out.
In this workshop video, I'm using:
- She, introspective personal journal
- Gadanke Workshop 18: Journal when you feel lost or frustrated
- Jeanette Rankin, America's Conscience by Norma Smith
- my favorite German pen in evening gray
- photo pen in red bird
- date stamper
- library card from within She journal
