The Book of Emotion | Chapter Eleven & Twelve

Grief & Courage

Grief and courage has been my personal companions through 2017 and a bit of both sadness and bravery surrounds me when I release the two last chapters of The Book of Emotions before immersing myself in creating the final book. It has been an amazing journey, the connections with the writers, the feed back from readers and, of course, all the feelings faced, examined and re-discovered.

Grief and Courage can both be raging, strong warriors and lingering, growing undercurrents. Working with them is almost always better than against them and the writers who joined this last stretch of creating the chapters all share deep from their hearts.

Feel free to share this chapter of the book and the story behind it. I also love if you spread the word about my project in your communities.
