Hi All - I am currently collecting stories from people in their own words describing their unique and special bond with their horse(s). The collection will make up an anthology entitled Horses and Their People - A Love Story.
There is no word limit and people may write on any subject as long as it involves horses. So far I have one poem, several stories of childhood memories - a wide range of styles and topics - funny, inspiring, sad, uplifting.
Some people have said they would love to participate but they aren't writers. As my friend Colin Dangaard so wisely put it, we are all writers or at least have the potential to be - we all have our stories to tell and I am not looking for polished and professional stories - but stories from the heart.
That said, if there is anyone out there who is a little self conscious, I will be happy to review and rework your story as needed, with the understanding that you have the final say over the content.
Each person's story is a chapter, headed by a photo of the person and their horse(s).
I hope to publish by the end of the year, however, it will depend largely on whether I have enough submissions. So please, do not hesitate to pour out your heart, tell the world how you feel about horses and the influence they have had on your life.
I'm just going to keep nagging until you add your voice. Thank you.
