Just because some editor tells you to give up your dream of writing "your life", and because you say you are coming near to the end of your life, DON'T GIVE UP! I didn't think I could do it either, but I did. And so can you..."Write what you know" is what I was taught in writing courses. Well, you certainly know what you went through. So just because your manuscript was rejected by one editor doesn't mean your story needs sit on a shelf. Persist. Just keep on. Look at it with the eyes of someone else, and write from another perspective...Your story will bless someone, sometime...Don't give up. But keep looking up! And I know you are...Helen

I disagree with the Editor who rejected your MS.
Life is full of struggle and heartache. Not every frog gets to kiss the prince!

Someone going through the difficulties that you have experienced needs to hear your story.
Perhaps the best part of your manuscript, is the part you are now living?

There is a time and season for all things. I pray that this might be yours. God's abundant blessings and grace be upon you.

Thank you for such a beautiful article. It is so sad, tender, gentle and moving. God has bought you thus far and He will continue carrying you through. Do not count all as lost for we can see the here and now but God sees eternal.
