I'm writing a book

  1. A few of you have told me either on the BB, or via PM that I should consider writing. Well, I've started my book. I've felt for a while now that I have one good book in me, so I've taken the plunge and started to write it. It's titled That's just it. Coming to terms with the past, living well in the present. It's autobiographical in nature, but also written to help inform and hopefully inspire others to have the courage to dig throught the wreckage of the past in order to discover who you really are, and to help you live better and happier lives by taking the lessons from the past and learning from them. You can actually build something strong and beautiful from a traumatic past. In order to ever move forward one MUST have the courage to look back at the past without shame or guilt. Only then, when we are willing can true healing really begin. I hope this turns into something that can truly help others. I can honestly say that I am discovering myself all over again by writing this book. I only pray that what I've learned can help others lead happier more fulfiling lives. That will be my true reward. I'll let you know how things progress. Love and Peace to all, WW.

    Writing truly is a healing art. If nothing else becomes of the book, you will have done yourself a great favor in the writing of it. As you edit what you write, you will be able to edit your life and make corrections. Good for you !

    Well, so far I've got the forward and the first chapter written. Only 15 more chapters to go!! LOL! I hope I don't run out of words. I don't know the first thing about writing a book and trying to get it to sell, but I have a friend who's very supportive of this project and said to me, "Just get the book written, and we'll do the rest." I asked her, "Can you help me get it published and sell it." She repeated "Get it written and I'll make sure you get on the talk show circuit, Dr. Phil and Oprah." I said "Are you serious?" She said "Absolutely serious." I think she may know some people who can help me get it published. I sure hope so. And yes, If I'm lucky enough to get it published all of my Allnurses sibs will get signed copies,plus you gotta tell your friends!!! Love ya! WW.
