“This is what 70 looks like.” Is a killer title. I think it would have been a winner. Then you added “surviving shingles.” Oops.

Personally, I don’t usually choose to read about people’s journeys through diseases or illnesses. Many do, and find it inspiring. But it have to be the right mindset to delve into other people’s sorrow or pain. So, honestly, it scared me away. Now had you left the shingles part off and eased me into it during the story, who knows…

Just my observation. And I can relate. Often the stories I think will do great end up my least read. And the ones I hesitate to publish or think are just so-so often do the best. I quit trying to figure it out and just publish everything. LOL!
