I began my journey towards December a few weeks ago. Every year, I feel the pressure to document December in some fabulous way. I have tried doing a December Daily and quite frankly, I have always failed at it. I think it becomes too much for me to try to accomplish and still be able to spend the time with my family that I desire. Still, I wanted something for this year. Something I could actually finish. Something that would tell a rich meaningful story while not occupying a great deal of my time. I found that something when Debbie announced she was teaching " Your December Story."
I got a peek at "Your December Story" and I'm giving away a free pass!
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to begin documenting my story with lesson one. For the first time, I have a game plan for December. I have a new way to begin my family's story. I am very excited to share a peek into that story today. And I'm giving away one pass to the class. (If you already purchased the class, you'll get a $24 gift card good for any other GIS/MSD classes.)
Your December Story is shaped around the Hero's Journey
"This December, like Dorothy dropped into Oz or Alice tumbled into Wonderland, you will receive a call to adventure. You will move from the ordinary world into a one of magic and tests as the holiday season arrives.
Many of the most-loved and best remembered stories play out in a story form described by Joseph Campbell as "the hero's journey." This class has prompts and page ideas for visual storytelling that have you telling Your December Journey, from the heralds, to the challenges, mentors, special tools and the return to the known world and what you take forward."
I had to quote Debbie because I just can't say it better myself. We create a magical world with a blend of adventure and tradition every year for our family. Why not approach the telling of our tale with visual storytelling in much the same way that our favorite stories do?
Page two is a work in progress. I chose to use pocket pages to approach my December Story. It allows me to complete a few cards at a time. I use the project sheets provided in the class to outline my story. I then have an idea of what photos or supplies I might want to document the next part of my journey. Scrap pieces of paper provide me with an idea of where I want to place each part of the tale.
This class has helped me feel like I am ahead of the game. I love the fresh ideas paired with the rich inspiration. There is, after all, no greater inspiration than a well written story. Reading the prompts makes me so excited for December.
