In February, I posted a story about Susan Wexler. The Westporter had just launched “What’s New in the Romance Department?,” a multimedia celebration of true stories of love and romance. She (and contributors) share real stories from all stages of life, in multiple genres including animated videos.
There’s a reason the “06880” tagline is “where Westport meets the world” — and Susan’s story proves it. She writes:
“Jack Canfield, author of the famous Chicken Soup for the Soul series, likes to mentor and support projects that appeal to him.
“He is currently writing a book about living life with love, instead of fear. Thanks to the ‘06880’ post, his people found me on Google.
Once a year Jack invites 17 people to his home in Santa Barbara, California for a retreat. He offers advice on taking their work to the next level. This year, I was invited!
“Because of COVID, it had to be virtual. But it was still great — so helpful!
“Also, Jack interviewed me for a TV show he hosts in California.
“And … in 6 weeks he is sending a tweet to his 1,100,000 followers about my blog.
“He also highly recommends that I turn the blog into a book — and he offered to give me a testimonial.
“Thanks to Jack’s support, I am on a trajectory that I never dreamed of before!”
Good things happen to great people. Meanwhile — despite all these head-spinning events — Susan keeps looking for great stories.
If you have an incident, anecdote or OMG moment of your romantic life to share, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need assistance with writing, please ask her. She’s happy to help,
Just the way Jack Canfield helped her.
