Many wonderful stories have come in so far. Some are humurous, others will simply touch your heart. Parents, grandparents, and those working with special needs individuals have taken the time to write about their experiences. This is an opportunity for many to connect with others who may be going through something similar.
There is still time for you or someone that you know to dust off your notebook and just sit and write how you feel. Where you upset when you first learned that someone you loved would struggle in life? Did you laugh when your autistic child did something completely off the wall crazy? Is there someone in your life who is the most inspiring person you have met despite all that they are faced against? These are the stories that we want to hear.
If you would like to submit a piece of writing and still remain anonymous, that is perfect acceptable. It is also alright to say in your story that you are changing the names to keep a loved ones privacy. Multiple submissions are also welcomed!
I have decided to allow just a little more time for story submissions due to the late announcement of the project by the press. Anyone wishing to submit a story can do so by emailing them to me at WindingRoadBook@aol.com.
