The VALUE of my WRITING WORKBOOK



JUST A BOOK?

Project completed, manuscript at the press.
Now begins the important part:
marketing-shouting to the world
the birth of new ideas
to tantalize imaginations,
bring comfort to broken hearts.

How to announce this news?
Open my mouth––let my VOICE
be heard through advertising
promoting, celebrating
the arrival of my latest book
Discover Your Voice After Divorce.

A work of love, the voice of experience
reaching out in prose and poetry
with guided questions to bring healing,
recovery to broken hearts
disillusioned by breakups, separations
devastating divorces and other losses.

Writing about destruction of dreams,
family members divided
never to be unified in this life.
Time for making new plans
going forward, risking again,
finding hope admid despair.

Forgiving, beginning over
believing, understanding
the necessity of growing times.
Looking back to learn,
going forward with courage
to new beginnings and trusting.

Good luck. Lin. With so many people getting divorced these days, your book will be invaluable.
