Last week we talked about a few questions that you can ask and answer to help you jump start the writing process. Today’s blog is going to continue this list of questions. The questions in this blog will help you generate ideas for entries in your spiritual ethical will, as well as help you overcome writer’s block.
Question No. 1: What events in your life did you learn important lessons from and what were those lessons?
This question is intended to spark a storytelling session. Your ethical will doesn’t have to be a long narrative, but if you like telling stories about your life then this is the place to do it. When writing your stories start by explaining when it happened, who was involved and where it took place. Then tell your story and wrap up your entry by explaining what you learned.
Question No. 2: Who were the people in your life that you learned the most from?
This question is intended to help you discuss the people in your family, your friends or other important people in your life that you learned from. This question can be a great stimulus for a series of entries. It can also help inspire you to write entries about your family genealogy or your family history.
Question No. 3: What do you know about your family?
If you are interested in making your spiritual ethical will a mini-family history or memoir, then start your ethical letter or will with an introduction about what you know about your family. For example, what parts of the world did they come from, who were your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents and what was your childhood like?
