How to Write an EHE Account: Getting Started
Suzanne V. Brown
The key to writing any Exceptional Human Experience (EHE) narrative, whether it is a single account, a series of accounts, or a full-blown EHE autobiography, is to just simply begin. Find yourself about 30 minutes of free time and a quiet place to collect your thoughts. Below are a series of steps with questions to ponder and get you started. Once you begin, you will find that remembering your story and writing it down from your point of view is immensely satisfying, even wonderfully self-indulgent. Repeat as often as desired!
Your EHE narrative begins with an Exceptional Experience (EE). This may be an EE from your earliest childhood memory, one that happened more recently, the only one you can recall in your life, one you feel most comfortable writing about, or the one you consider the most spectacular.
Steps and Questions to Ponder
You have just completed outlining your first EHE narrative account. We are very interested in your written account, what happened, what you felt, did, and learned about your experience. We would appreciate including it in our narrative databank to further research and to encourage others to write their own narratives. You may submit your story anonymously, if you would like.
Once you have written your first EHE narrative account, you will probably want to explore other EEs in your life in much the same way. Sooner or later you may discover that these experiences connect together for you in ways that you had not even considered before. This insight, sensing a connection across experiences is, in itself an EHE. It is here that you begin to recognize the larger tapestry of your life and you are well on your way to writing your EHE autobiography.
