How to submit your own "A Day in the Life..." story
In order to have your story published, please follow the guidelines below:
- Has to be written in a story format from your perspective as a wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/husband. No choppy, incomplete sentences. Try to write it in present tense.
- Outline of story ideally should be:
1. Relationship bio and military history (stick to 1-2 paragraphs)
NOTE: The last 3 parts (Morning, Afternoon, and Night) should be the majority of your story.
- IMPORTANT! You must walk us through an actual day of your life. Don't just briefly summarize what you usually do everyday - it takes away from the story! Emily's story is a wonderful example.
- Be creative, talk candidly about your relationship, your thoughts, etc.
- Choose your own title. Titles must start with "A Day in the Life of..." But try to make your title unique and different from the other titles others have chosen.
- No length limit. Please no short, choppy stories.
Please read a couple of the stories that have already been published so you get an idea of what to do.
