WHAT IS A REAL LIVE STORY?
A Real Live Story is an ongoing memoir that's composed in real time as you live your life. It's the story of your journey so far, from birth to now. It's the first chapters of what will be your complete narrative, and it progresses with you. The best part is, while your story unfolds, friends, family, or the whole world--it's totally up to you--can watch it take shape, turning the pages of your live online book. And any time you want to make it official, we'll publish your story in book form. Real Live Story is life review reinvented, the first Tell It as you Live It memoir. A Real Live Story is the best way to authentically capture and express the essence of who you are.
YOUR STORY IS FAR FROM OVER...WHY TELL IT NOW?
Starting your life story now is an ideal way to share your past and present with the friends you make today. Paint the full picture with your background and experiences. Second, memories fade, and the savory details that are the backbone of a good story can get lost. Think about how fuzzy things are from even one decade ago. Imagine trying to recall a lifetime in your golden years. Third, telling your story now preserves the narrative from the unique perspective you're experiencing at this time. Later it may be hard to understand why you made the decisions you did. Lastly and perhaps most obviously, the future is uncertain. No one knows how or when their tale is going to end. This is your chance to have a say in how your story is told.
YOUR STORY GROWS WITH YOU
Got more to say? Of course you do. Your story marches on, and we want to be there to record it. As your life evolves, we'll record events, milestones, motivations, dreams, and even the snafus. Chapters are added periodically, at a time frame of your choosing. You'll receive reminders before it's time to update, giving you a chance to glance back at your calendar and collect your thoughts prior to meeting with the writer. Adding new chapters can be an amazing process, with time set aside to check in on the State of You. Capture the favorite moments you never want to forget. Reflect on what you've learned and what's changed. Consider what you'd like to see for the future. Record this moment in time. Your narrative grows organically with you through the years, and you'll always be in possession of a story rich in detail about the people you meet, events that shape you, and the insights you gain.
