There’s a book I have been wanting to write for a while now, but I didn’t want to let the blog go either, and there’s no way I could do both.
I started reading it a couple of days ago, and in the book she encourages you to write down the mega project you are not doing because it looks too hard. Then make a plan.
So I have been planning and praying about that mega project that has been on hold, and the answer came to me. Break it into chapters. Run it as a series on the blog. I may not run all of it. There may be some chapters that you will have to wait for the book.
So from now on, my friends and readers, I’m going to attempt the first scheduled thing this blog has ever done.
The Real Army Wives of the War on Terrorism series.
I am going to tell my own personal story of being a military spouse through the War on Terrorism. And if any of you would like me to run some of your stories too, send me a submission! I may have to edit it, but I will be happy to do so and see if I can work it in.
These are not war stories (sorry to disappoint some of you). These are stories of what the family experienced.
I’m also not overly wild about how lengthy my title for this series is. If any of you have a shorter title idea, I will consider it, for sure!
Just The Real Army Wives, maybe? What do you think?
Can’t wait! So when do we start?
Every Monday. Every Monday there will be a new installment of this series, and we will begin with my story of 9/11/2001 because that’s the day the course of the Army wives’ lives was changed.
The 9/11 story will be up on Monday, May 15, 2017. Before you even get your coffee, it will be in your inbox.
Pssst! Once I’ve completed the series, I’m going to put it all together in an ebook for my boys and grandchildren to read someday.
I feel like they should hear the story of what happened from a first-hand account. Wouldn’t you love to have something like that from your ancestors about their time period?
