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…
