“It clearly struck a chord.” I’m finding this also with the very open stuff that I write about our somewhat unconventional life. I have chosen to keep myself anonymous because that’s what allows me to be truly free to say exactly what I want to, in part because I do give intimate details. But in any case, I wholeheartedly agree that as writers we need to own our words and be vulnerable — and that’s exactly what resonates for readers. Good for you!
