Overcoming Challenges

Chicken Soup for the Soul is looking for submissions to a new book about 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.”
For more information or to submit: http://www.chickensoup.com/form.asp?cid=possible_books

Overcoming challenges (and conflict)in our own lives helps us to be better writers :-)

Thanks for the info. I'm a Type 1 diabetic with 3 special-needs grandchildren. Overcoming challenges has been my life's story.

Oh, what a great idea for a book - thanks so much for sharing, I'm going to check it out. I think most people have overcome *something* in their lives, and the experience is usually positive in most cases.

Submitting a piece to the next Chicken Soup book is a challenge which I do not think I will overcome. Though I have overcome lots of others. As have most people.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

4 years ago my Mother was dying. she was in the ICU almost 7 weeks, a short period of time she made it to another floor. The up and down emotionally was very difficult. I did a lot of knitting and crocheting as I sat by her bed. She suffered so much trying to stay alive.

Great post. I think we all could submit a article. No one goes though life without dealing with a serious challenge or two. I'm visiting from the A to Z challenge and will be back!
