JUST DO IT:
GET THE BOOK OUT!
GET THE STORY OUT!

 
After several years of procrastination and putting my autobiography on the back burner, one day I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, "Mary, you have put that book on the back burner for so long that it isn't even on the stove anymore." God wasn't smiling when he said it. A godly fear came over me. Suddenly, the scripture came to my mind that says we should learn to number our days. (Psa. 90:12)

When my nerves calmed down and I finished shaking, I moved so fast that I got the 240 page book, Born Grown, done and off the press in three months. Does this sound like you? Some of you have been told over and over again that you need to write a book. So, what does hinder you? Someone is in desperate need of your victory testimony. So, again I ask, what does hinder you?


Listen, perhaps you don't feel ready to write a WHOLE book, well, write a SHORT story. Below is a list of topics for Chicken Soup for the Soul. They only require 300-1200 words. Deadlines are critical. So just do it now!
 
Write for Chicken Soup for the Soul and Get Paid.
Let me help you. (313) 744-MARY

CURRENT CHICKEN SOUP TOPICS
 
Home Sweet Home

Whether you rent your home or own your home, home is where your heart is. It is your safe place in the world. Your home can be a mansion, a cottage, an apartment, a condo or a mobile home... it doesn't matter. It is yours! It is where you live, where you cook and sit around the table with your family and friends, sharing a meal and your dreams. We are looking for stories about homes: getting your first home, returning to your childhood home, do it yourself repair disasters and successes, moving up or downsizing, moving day or any heartwarming or funny stories associated with home. This book will make the perfect housewarming gift. The deadline date for story and poem submissions is November 30, 2013.


My Guardian Angel

We are looking for stories from people who believe that they have encountered or been helped by angels. How did your angel manifest himself or herself? How did your angel help you or someone you know? Please do not send stories about people who are "angels" because they do nice things, and also please do not submit eulogies where you say that your loved one is now an angel. The deadline for story and poem submissions is December 31, 2013.


Living with Alzheimer's & Other Dementias

We are working with the Alzheimer's Association to make a very special collection of stories. Are you caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia? Are you a patient? You are not alone! Please share your true personal stories about caring for someone with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. If you are in early stages of the disease and would like to share your story, we feel that would be very helpful to other patients and their caregivers too. Use your personal experience as a caregiver, a loved one, or a patient to encourage and inspire others, and also pass on your best advice for patients and caregivers. Proceeds from this book will support the work of the Alzheimer's Association. The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2013.

Overcoming Challenges

Life is filled with challenges. We have all gone through trying times and have had to overcome difficult situations. We would like to know what challenges you have faced in your life and what you did to overcome them. Are you recovering from health problems, financial difficulties or the loss of a loved one? What changes did you make to help you cope with these issues and turn negative into positive? Your stories will give our readers inspiration and insight into how others are coping and let them know that there is hope even in adversity. The deadline for story and poem submissions is October 31, 2013.

Reboot Your Life

Were you in a rut? Was your life boring and dull? Hopefully you did something positive about that. What kind of a major changes did you make that brought back your purpose, passion, and joy? Did you start a completely new career, have a travel adventure or find a new hobby? Was it a new love interest or an attitude adjustment that helped you reboot your life? We want to hear your stories. Stories can be serious or funny, but we definitely want them to inspire our readers to take a chance and give them the courage to reboot their own lives. The deadline for story and poem submissions is November 30, 2013.

Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries

With a traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurring every 18.5 seconds in this country, chances are you have been touched in some way by this experience. TBI is the signature wound of our returning soldiers. It is literally changing the rules for athletes from the NFL to the public schools. If you have sustained a TBI, if you are a family member dealing with the challenges of TBI, or if you are a health care professional inspired by TBI survivors, we want to hear your story. What do you know now that you wish you knew then? What helped you most in your recovery? What lesson did you learn from an amazing survivor of traumatic brain injury? The deadline for story and poem submission is November 30, 2013.



The Cat Did WHAT?

We love stories about our cats. They are part of our families or perhaps it might be better to say that they allow us to think of them as family! We include them in our celebrations and buy them gifts for special occasions. They have a special place in our lives and in our hearts. What do you do to make your cat feel special? What does your cat expect from you? How has having a cat changed your life? We know you'll have many great stories for us about how you cater to your cat and how your cat is included in your family. Stories can be serious or humorous... or both. The deadline for story and poem submissions is January 5, 2014.

The Dog Did WHAT?

We love stories about our dogs and the amazing things they do. They are part of our families. We include them in our celebrations and even buy them gifts for special occasions. They have a special place in our lives and in our hearts. What do you do to make your dog feel special? What does your dog expect from you? How has your dog changed your life? We know you'll have many great stories for us about how you pamper your pooch and how your pooch is included in your family. Stories can be serious or humorous... or both. The deadline for story and poem submissions is January 5, 2014.
