I Won An Award For These First Three Chapters

I just won an award for the first three chapters of The Year of My Divorce.

I entered a chapter contest and won Third Place in the Adult Category. I thought, "Well, I guess three people entered. . ." I found out later I was the only non-fiction entry among twenty in the category. I felt pretty darn good after hearing that.

This "book" isn't even published and I won an award for it. I can't express how I feel. I'm happy and feel awesome, but at the same time. . . I don't know how I feel about publishing it. What would my children think? It's about their father.

There's the dilemma.

It was cathartic for me, of course, to write about my divorce process, and I would like to think there's a bit of altruism connected to it--like hopefully to help other women who have gone through what I went through, or are going through it now.

Please read the first three chapters and let me know what you think.

Would you like to read more?

Congratulations on the award! Yes, although it's difficult to read about your agony, I would like to hear more. Mostly because, in my estimation, you are a remarkable woman, and I want to know how you managed to survive this giant, wrenching step to become what you are today.
