I have been trucking along with my writing which means I haven’t been blogging as much and I would like to.
There are 8 chapters that are written in my autobiography. The one I wrote today still needs editing but there are 106 pages total.
I found 5 of those chapters on a USB drive and naturally those had to be totally rewritten because I wrote them last year and they weren’t written with the same technique I am using now. Also, they didn’t even make sense so I just had to rewrite them.
I never thought that I would get as far as I have because I didn’t think I would know how to write this book. The problem was, all of the things that happened to me all blended together and I could never remember the exact time lines.
Writing this autobiography is not only therapeutic but it’s also helping me put the pieces to the puzzle of my life together and I’m remembering which order things happened in.
I believe I have another 5 chapters to write and then I will be ready to send it to a publisher and hope it gets published. If it doesn’t then I will try to copyright it and self publish it through Barnes & Nobles Pubit.
I don’t want to self publish it because I probably won’t get very many readers because I won’t have an advertising budget. If I have a publisher then perhaps it might sell millions. Who knows.
My main objective in writing this book is that I might help people understand the mind of the abuse victim. What they are going through when they are being abused and why they do the odd things that they do. Which in this case would be me.
Even if I don’t help anyone, I am helping myself because it is making me feel so much better to have all of this out in the open. It’s like a huge weight is being lifted with every word I write.
I changed 95% of the names in my book so if I said something about someone and they don’t like it then they can’t sue me for slander because their name isn’t in it.
I hope it’s finished soon because it’s killing my eyes and my back lol.
