Creative Writing Professor Reveals the Healing Power of Story: Teaches Life Changing Secrets after Receiving Governor’s Pardon
Positive and enlightening news is very hard to come by lately with all the news headlines riddled with negative, sad and often deeply troubling news. Although probably accurate, the media paints a very bleak picture of the sad stories people have to share, but one author is working to take the negative and turn it into something really positive. The book can be bought from Amazon.com’s online store from the following URL: http://bit.ly/TransformedByWriting
Creative Writing Professor Robert Hammond is working tirelessly to provide a platform for people to leverage on the power of their stories, however happy, sad or thought-provoking those stories are and one of the many ways through which the literary consultant is doing so is through his latest book, Transformed by Writing: How to Change Your Life and Change the World with the Power of Story. The author, producer and award-winning screenwriter has had first-hand experience in positively bringing stories to life, with his own life story serving as a catalyst for this project.
Having demonstrated a transformed life after performing years of public service, Hammond received a full pardon from California Governor Jerry Brown, on Easter 2013. “Perhaps your desire is to leave a lasting legacy for your friends and family or you simply feel the need to share your personal testimony or message with the world“, the inspirational author was quoted as saying when asked about the main inspiration for his book. Either way, there is no better way than to do that by communicating your innermost feelings and sharing your experiences through the power of story, as the greatest impact with people is made through experiencing an account of events they can relate to themselves.
Hammond’s book release couldn’t have come at a better time, in line with a recent headline-grabbing event that serves to demonstrate how the simple act of conveying stories has the power to heal and to save lives. The much-publicized event, starring Antoinette Tuff, front office worker at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy, serves to demonstrate the most basic of human instincts yearning to come to the fore and it’s a pity that that burning desire to tell one’s story had to be explored under the most trying of circumstances. As the ordeal goes, Antoinette was directly involved in preventing what could have otherwise turned into a very ugly series of events, when she managed to persuade a gunman who had made his way in to the school grounds to hand himself in and effectively call-off his planned gun attack.
How did she do it? Through the power of story, by simply narrating her own struggles to the gunman and sharing some experiences and emotions he could relate to himself.
Everybody has as story to tell and no matter how insignificant people think their stories may be, honesty goes a long way and it is essentially the true-life struggles and tiny victories that come with those struggles which make for the best stories ever, harnessing the true, life-changing power of story.
Transformed by Writing: How to Change Your Life and Change the World with the Power of Story is definitely a must-read for those seeking to learn something about themselves which they might not have known and indeed those who want to be transformed by writing and change their lives and the world with the power of story.
