I have been told numerous times to write books, and I see the appeal – people relate to what I say, I can express my journey in ways they understand and relate to. Plus various other reasons.

I have no literary skills other then getting my thoughts out in writing. I am not deluded in any way as to my writing skills being anything other than average, but there does seem to be many who relate to what I write, as opposed to how I write.

I guess this is the crux of the matter – I have insight, I have expression ability, but is that really enough to write a book?

I certainly won’t be writing one Biblically related (yet?), because I am very aware how much more theology I have to learn.

But, the idea of putting a collection of written thoughts and insight into my healing journey, together into a book, appeals. Basically the things I write on my community page, put into some kind of order, and to be used as an insight, motivation, validation book, where readers could just read them one at a time and go back to them when struggling.

People already tell me they save my writings, to go back and reflect – so a book would be more convenient and could reach out to more people….

And it would highlight my faith too, so that’s always a good opportunity to talk about God, without ramming my faith down people’s throats – which I know is the worst thing to do.

Had so many not told me to write books – I wouldn’t even be considering it, as I have no designs on myself as any literary success at all.

But, even if it only helped a limited amount of people, it would be worth it, and I’ve already written so much anyway.

More to think about….get advice on…..pray about….

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. With my strengthening relationship with God, my wonderful husband, my highly experienced therapy team and my friends, I am on my journey to recovery, after decades of abuse. I am truly blessed.
