Squee! To be perfectly honest, I am so shy and insecure about my nonfiction pieces. It’s much easier for me to relay my truths through quirky aliens who eat cake and have space adventures.
But a while back I wrote a piece about how I experience hearing. A true account of my relationship with sounds and voices over the years. It’s called Gorgeously Hard of Hearing. (No, the title is not arrogance; it actually makes sense when you read the story.)
A fellow Spoonie author recommended I submit to Wordgathering, so, with the usual nerves, I pressed the Submit button. And it got accepted.
Thanks to the lovely editors at Wordgathering for publishing it!
