Friday kicked off the beginning of a series of guest posts on The Honeyed Quill. Drew Sheldon shared his story of abuse and survival in an intimate essay titled “The Beast Within.” If you haven’t read it, please go here. It’s not an essay you want to miss.
As part of the exchange, I provided an essay for Drew. It took us awhile to come up with a theme. In email, I told Drew I am afraid of white men, but not him. He chewed on that for awhile before asking me why. Thus the post was born. I hope you’ll wander over to Straight White Man Seeks Knowledge and find out why for yourself.
I also hope you’ll return here to read my guests many Fridays to come. I’m still astounded not only that these writers are willing to share their work here, but that they are happy to have my work on their amazing sites.
If you are interested in a blog exchange, please contact me. One benefit of working with me is the option of free coaching for the piece you develop for my site. You may not need it. Drew certainly didn’t, but if there is a story you want to tell but can’t seem to write, email me.
