I wrote a book when I was married -a LONG time ago. It was a story I had been inspired to write from my late teens/early 20s. I had finished it, printed off 2 hard copies, and saved it to a floppy disc – that should say just how long it’s been since this happened! I put all this and my research for the story in the bottom drawer of our file cabinet.
I wanted it to “rest” a couple months and then reread it to do any revisions – and hopefully publish. The drawer was empty. My husband had thrown it all away – everything. To dig the dagger in deeper – during the divorce he stated I had written a book during the marriage and he should get 50%.
I’ve always wanted to rewrite that story. Though every time I try I end up stuck in a writer’s block. It’s time to overcome.
