It's not about ED's as much as my other issues (bpd and trauma from being a former sw) but it's narrative free verse and I'm really proud of it. I don't want to link publicly because my real name is on the cover but if you want to DM me I'll give you the tinyurl I created for it. Digital copy is $5.99

I'm really proud of you for writing, sounds like it must have been pretty intense? Can I ask how you managed it, because I'm writing a lot lately and some of the stuff it brings up is a lot to deal with.

I found putting it into words to be therapeutic moreso than not. I do a few pages of journal-style writing that's only for me most days (every "work day," at minimim) when I first wake up, then work on projects like this during my other writing times.

I need to get in the habit of keeping a private journal again. I just dump everything in my "abyss" accountability now but I should keep some of it offline! I hope at one point to go through it and make a kind of ED memoir but the organisational skills for that don't come easily to me.

My book is free verse which gives me a lot of freedom in the organization sphere that a novel or memoir wouldn't have offered me. That's always a daunting aspect for me too.

That sounds really cool, I'm trying to collate mine at the moment so I can make what I think might be several distinct books of poetry, but I get easily distracted writing more, and not editing.
I forgot to ask! Could you send me the link via DM and is it available outside of the US? I'm guessing your price is USD, but I'm in the UK so hoping there's a way to get a copy

Just wanted to say, it's not that I don't/won't have feedback or compliments, it's that I have literally not managed to read anything all Summer. I'm aiming to get some of my stuff published within the year but it means I have to do boring stuff like read my own writing a lot lol!
But I am so sure that it will be awesome when I do get around to it and I hope you have more readership both in the short term and over time.
