Writing with TBI Challenges

Writing isn’t as glamorous as it may seem. There are long hours with no promise of success. You sweat. Dream. You claw your way from one page onto another. You pull words and together then delete others. It can be a challenging process.

Now try writing after suffering TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

That’s what Martin Johnson does. Read his guest post on Almost an Author, Writing with a Disability. You’ll want to cry. Then cheer. But one way or another, you’ll see the writing process differently. Thanks, Martin for sharing your journey. You can follow Martin on Twitter at @mtjohnson51.

What just happened to you? Read my latest post on the Blue Ridge Conference.
