Visionboarding & Organization December 1, 2012Dreams, Memoir, WritingInspiration, Memoir, Spirituality, womanhood, writingTerah Van Dusen My memoir Visionboard doubles as a place to keep organized. Notice the blank spaces, those are for writing my “scenes to-do lists” which are the scenes I still need to write ( I’ll cross them out as I go). And the wheel in the middle is my “full-circle story”, which shows the general idea of my memoir starting at the top and traveling counter clockwise. My full-circle story diagram. It’s a start. It could definitely be elaborated on. It helps. I think. My main goal of 2013 (if it happens sooner, great) is to find meaning in my story. Like, one meaning, or two, but no more than three. A “theme” if you will. A “take-home message”. The “moral of the story”. I like this little corner of my Visionboard. Often as I’m writing in my journal I’ll think of an idea like “Choose Your Own Adventure Ending” and I’ll just write that and a light bulb to signify “idea”. Well, now I have an “idea” corner–to compile a list of my ideas. My life Visionboard. It’s more intricate than the other Visionboard, and every space is filled with images I clipped out of magazines. To make a Visionboard, instinctively clip images and words without thinking too much about it. Then tape or paste the words and pictures together–the result being truths revealed about you. Truth about me: I want to be able to work a “real job” and be a successful writer too. I find this portion of my Visionboard to be very mysterious. Especially the bottom left corner. That’s my hand writing. This part represents where I come from but also the future. This section has a lot of hidden meaning. It conjures many thoughts for me. Pursuit of Happiness.

Wow Terah! That is impressive! I have no doubt that you will achieve your goals. Well done!
Thank you so much!! It can’t hurt..
That’s impressive. I hope these weren’t cut from your neighbors’ magazines, the neighbors who happened to be out of town for a weekend and accidentally left their door unlocked.
Haha, what do you mean?
