Writing about my experience of having a miscarriage was sad and painful, but still positive. It helped me work through the emotions I went through at the time - ten years ago.
The news that my contribution would be included in this anthology was a shock. I had written it for myself and I submitted it without expecting it to be accepted. It is too personal for others to read.
When the book was published, I had just been to a memorial ceremony for my nephew who had died at 28 weeks gestation. At the time, I was too sad to tell many friends that I had had a piece of writing published.
I hope and pray that this book will help women going through the lonely and traumatic experience of miscarriage. I'm happy to share my experience, if it helps others through their pain.
But I feel no excitement about having my writing published.
