Ten Years and An Overdue Intervention | Winner for January 2019 Muse of the Month | Women’s Web

The first short story I have written this year is for Women’s Web’s Muse of the Month. As always, they bring back their successful monthly writing contest with a fresh perspective in 2019 (read about it here).

January 2019’s writing cue is these lines from the inspiring African-American writer Maya Angelou, taken from her poem Phenomenal Woman

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed

My story is titled Ten Years and An Overdue Intervention and has been selected as one of the five winning stories for this month.

It is about a young women who discovers her true ‘financial independence’ despite having been financially independent for a decade.

The story is published online at Women’s Web as a featured post and is available to read here.

I imagine many women would relate to having experienced this at some point in their lives, as did I, in my professional surroundings, which is how I was inspired to write it.

Do take a few minutes to read the story and leave your feedback. Thank you!
