Shannon, excellent work. I write much the same way, and I have gotten trolls. But they don’t even make a ripple compared to being read by Kris Gage, John Gorman and Shannon Ashley, and highlighted by Jessica Wildfire. More importantly, writing with transparency helps others who have experienced similar traumas or who are looking for inspiration. Authenticity always pays off, even if it doesn’t show up monetarily immediately.
