This really struck home for me in a lot of ways. I can say my father’s death made me turn to writing although I didn’t fully embrace it until just recently (not due to a life changing incident though). I need to continue embracing it and working towards my first book.
Really like the idea about the editor — it’s so, so important.
No matter what, everyone has a story to tell. It’s a matter of getting on your platform and telling your story in a way that’s most comfortable for you.
Thanks for this piece, I will remember it.
