Anything Writing #3 I Write — Sometimes, I Read

I Write — Sometimes, I Read

My writing group, the Write Group of Montclair sponsors Open Mics every month. Twice a year we meet at Barnes and Noble book store to read to the public. I am reading a chapter from my book in progress. It is about my husband, David, and the traumatic brain injury he suffered and survived in January 2005. The picture I am holding is David on Christmas morning just three weeks before his trauma.

Reading to strangers gives me a sense of well-being. They encourage me with their intent interest in the story and their  amazement at David’s survival.

donna-david-pict-2-b&nDavid comes with me to the readings. He is living proof and testament to my words.

The first draft of the book is completed. I am  working on revisions and will send it to a publisher when done.

 

Update: My book, Prisoner Without Bars: Conquering Traumatic Brain Injury is completed and is now searching for an agent.

  2. Thanks so much, Sarah. An agent was interested for about a month, but, alas, she declined. You can read more about Traumatic Brain Injury on my “other” blog. survivingtraumaticbraininjury.wordpress.com.

    I hope all is well with you.

    All best,

    Donna
