WOW! Women on Writing publishes my essay: Finger Gone Rogue, Writing Gone Mute

Some of you will recall me sharing with you last year that I almost lost a finger but saved it by getting Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Good news came from that unfortunate experience.

Life often gives us our stories. We bring them to life for others by writing them.

Publication life is fraught with rejections; nevertheless, this story produced two publications for me. These two publications make the point of the story even more real and robust.

  1. I submitted this limited-word story for a membership-only audience. It was accepted by the Story Circle Network. (See their site for a membership application, online courses, and story contests.)
  2. Later I fleshed out the story in full detail for a different publication opportunity. WOW! Women on Writing accepted it for their Tales from the Trenches competition and published it today. (See their site for online classes, story contests, and more.)

Both organizations are committed to the writing of women and seeing that it gets published. Don’t overlook these two online resources for writing inspiration and an opportunity to develop your craft of writing !!!

    Loved reading the story (Not that you went through it but hearing it told in such a compelling way). Your experience sounded bad before but reading your story really gave a picture of how extensive it was. I’m so glad you’re on the mend and that you were able to keep your finger. Much to be thankful for ❤️

    Love Levian
