Writing always goes through an editing process. Go back and re-read what you've written. Look for what's helped you survive and has shed some redemptive light on your situation. Find the wisdom you've learned and share that insight. As we put the book together, we'll be looking for well thought out stories that leave the reader feeling impacted, empowered, and encouraged by your story of overcoming. We'll be selecting stories that either reveal a short and impactful message (think an instagram post), or stories that tell your narrative in a way that compels and offers an important insight (think one page of a book). Redemption, healing, resiliency, overcoming, and understanding will be common threads of this book. If the reader is in your shoes, make sure your story leaves them feeling inspired to press on. If your reader can't relate, make sure your story teaches them the insights that only you can offer.
Expect that we will be editing the content, and of course approving it with you before publishing. Editing is normal and good and necessary.
