Origins of Mind Over Gray Matter – A True Story

Mind Over Gray Matter  ©2017 Bonnie McKeegan Written for wattpad #mindovermattercontest  Bonnie’s Mind Over Gray Matter story over on Wattpad

A True Story of Pure Mind Over Gray Matter Leading to Achievement. Along the Way Pure Joy was Lost.

I wrote this short story (500 words) and posted it this morning over on Wattpad for their #mindovermattercontest.  Please wish me luck!  I am keeping some of my stories over there in case of the desire to publish at a future date.  That is my quiet fantasy after all.

Mind Over Gray Matter is a true story about my First Edition of PTSD years ago. It is very abbreviated and parts of the story are not told within these 500 words. Maybe I’ll create a longer version, someday.  Or better yet incorporate it into a fictional tale! Sorry, no details here so as not to impact your experience of the story should you chose to read it.

My Second Edition of PTSD is a story I cannot, nor would if I could, ever publish. My loss was vicarious and vicious in nature. The true tragedy is someone else’s story.

I can, however, say that both experiences still effect me today. For better, and for worse.

My blog website started out as Healing Through Writing.  After finishing this morning’s story I realized that writing it out, within the clear parameters of the contest, seemed to give me a bit more peace and acceptance.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Until next time…
