What It’s Like to… is about the things humans do, and what it’s like to do them. Simple! But oh so profound. We call it WiLt for short, and here you’ll find real stories of What It’s Like to do …whatever. Save a Life. Be a Surgeon. Pave a Road.
Of course, many wonder about “negative” things too — What It’s Like to Notify a Family of a Death. Lose a Child. Serve on a Murder Jury. Even What It’s Like to Wake from a Coma.
Each story is a mere 3-minute read: quick, but you’ll find out What It’s Like to experience a lot of different things.
What It’s Like to… Write Your Story!
Send Us Your Story: Part of the idea is to be a platform to allow readers to tell their own stories, which are then professionally edited for a smooth flow. Please think about telling one (or more!) of your stories — we all have them, and others are interested. The Submission Guidelines has details so you can tell readers What It’s Like to be in your shoes for a few minutes.
You can subscribe to get an email notification of new stories when they’re posted (see sidebar), or follow What It’s Like to on Medium.com.
