Ever fancied yourself as a writer? StoryTerrace just may be the answer to help you achieve the dream – and there is no better time to start than now. Continuous lockdowns have paved the way for a new generation of readers and the demand for biographies and self-help books has soared. Similarly, we are witnessing a wave of new writers sharing their life stories, too.
Leading biography-writing service, StoryTerrace has experienced a popularity boom, since March 2020. By enabling thousands of people to document their lives, creating professional autobiographies and biographies, this service provides unmeasurable therapeutic benefits. Such professionally written books can open the door for reconnecting with loved ones, ensuring a positive effect on wellbeing.
A good book is not merely a good form of escapism. An autobiography offers a chance for the author to reflect. Furthermore, it allows the reader to gain inspiration and new perspectives that may have otherwise been left in the dark.
Rutger Bruining, founder and CEO of StoryTerrace explains the massive benefits of both reading and writing biographies during the lockdowns:
“As someone who has dedicated their life to helping others discover the benefits of reading and writing, I am thrilled to see that there has been such a clear increase in demand for books over the past year, particularly self-help titles and autobiographies.
It seems as though the Coronavirus pandemic has not only encouraged people to seek out self-help books and inspirational tales from the lives of their role models to support them through these difficult times but has also provided people with the extra time needed to think about their own life story and the motivation to document it.
During lockdown in 2020, we saw a dramatic increase in the number of people discovering the benefits of biography writing, and it was so pleasing to see them benefit from the catharsis and enjoyment that comes from exploring one’s past experiences.
We’ve also seen many people documenting their life story become less isolated during lockdown, having been imbued with a renewed desire to maintain and develop their personal relationships with family and friends.
One thing I have learned over the past six years at StoryTerrace is that no two stories are the same. My own personal motivation for starting StoryTerrace was down to my late grandfather, whose stories of fighting the Nazis in the resistance in WWII inspired and amazed me as a child. Every story can inspire someone in some way, and to see that so many people have come to understand the power of reading and writing biographies is incredibly heartwarming.”
The beauty of StoryTerrace is that the company take care of every aspect involved. They match clients to their professional writers. Following this, StoryTerrace deals with all the tricky bits for you. Interviews, gathering photos, editing, design and printing are covered quickly and efficiently. This removes all stress, time and worry, so you can relax and focus on the outcome. Whether you choose an autobiography, biography or series of memoirs, StoryTerrace will make your dream come true.
