2 peas challenge

The challenge at two peas today is "What is in the book you are writing?" I've recently begun to think about that.

I have been writing a book. I've got a bunch of things all put down. I've got a bunch of stuff that needs to be edited and pulled into order. I can't wait, actually. I'm so ready to get this all out of me, and put somewhere that makes it all "real". You see, I'm a surivor of childhood sexual and physical abuse. I'm also a survivor of marital rape. It's taken me a long time to be able to say this, and perhaps it's not the easiest thing you would ever expect to read on a blog, but today, I'm OK. I really am. Tomorrow, I'm not so sure, eh? The best therapy for me, has been to actually write all that stuff down. To put it somewhere out of my body makes it easier to deal with. Maybe someday I will be able to help someone else who's gone through what I did.

If I had to write another book after this one is done, it would be a love story. The story of how I've grown up and learned to love.
