It’s been three and a half years in the making and I’m very close to completion on my book. As you can tell from my blog, I’m not a trained writer, so I have been working with a wonderful writing coach, Terry Wolverton, who has not only published many of her own books, but has coached others, such as me, that had a story to tell the world. She has taught me so much about how to tell a story that will keep a reader turning the pages. How to dig deeper for meaning and emotion. I’ve learned that it’s impossible to avoid experiencing what you’re writing about and I am so grateful for Terry’s kindness as I relived my memories, many of which were painful.
I will now be working with Terry on restructuring the manuscript, something I know little about, but thankfully, she does. Then I will be looking for a publisher. God willing, my book will reach the ears of those that need to hear it. The broken, the trapped. There is hope for a better life, one filled with joy and love.
God bless you all that followed my journey. Your support has kept me going.
Never, never, never give up. –Winston Churchill
