Hi Brooke, you wouldn’t believe how much your words mean to me. I’m so humbled that you hate reading but read this :)
I’m so glad you want to share your story. It’s never easy telling about the scary, vulnerable, horrific parts of our lives but I am slowly realizing there’s healing in acceptance and openness.
So sorry to hear you are feeling lose and like you have nobody left. But to know who you are and what you want— that is what you need to cling onto.
Brooke, I have never written a book before. But you know what, why don’t you start by writing some posts here on Medium. I find it’s good practice for writing, and also the fast response from readers is encouraging. As you keep writing, you will be building up content for a book… perhaps I will have written a book by then! :)
It has never been a priority for me, but you have gotten me thinking now. A person that comes to mind for help with writing a book is Shaunta Grimes — she was running a Ninja Writers program for people who want to write books. May still be going.
So how about that? Write your first post here on Medium, tag me in and I’ll give you some love. Depending on the topic, you may consider looking into a publication such as P.S. I Love You to share your story with more people. I can’t wait to read it Brooke! xx
