On July 30, 2016, I reached a writing milestone.
I finished writing my first manuscript, my memoir titled “Heart in a Drawer: My Story as a Child of Divorce.” This book took six years to write. I drew upon the past 27 years of journal writing to create a book of memories distilled into poetry moments. This book marks the end of a long journey and the beginning of another journey.
I’ve shared many of those poetry moments with you on my blog in the past six months. A small press publisher is reviewing my Heart in a Drawer manuscript, and you can read the rest of the story when a publisher decides to accept it. I hope that day arrives soon!
As of today, I’m making a shift in my posts.
I will post on the theme “Words of Encouragement” through September 20.
On September 20, I will reveal a very exciting Christmas-themed project coming to my blog in October. I am working hard to prepare it now, and if you’ve enjoyed my posts so far, I hope you will keep reading!
If you will take a few seconds to offer feedback on what you’ve enjoyed most about my writing, I will tailor future posts to your preferences. You can comment on my blog or on my Facebook author page, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Here are some questions to get you started:
- Do you feel as if you know the real me through my writing?
- Has my writing helped you better understand yourself or someone you know?
- Which parts of my story resonated most with you:
child of divorce
fear of abandonment
searching for love
problems with romantic relationships
eating for comfort
or any other themes? Which themes would you like to see developed in more posts?
Thank you in advance for your feedback! I appreciate each and every one of you.
Blessings to you, Sarah
