The Concept

I’m Randy Cassingham, one of the first online publishers ever (starting with my flagship This is True in early 1994).

What It’s Like to… is my newest site. I call it WiLt for short. It tells real stories of what it’s really 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.

The Site Takes Submissions: While I’ve done a lot of things in my life I certainly don’t know it all, so 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.

You can subscribe to get an email notification of new stories when they’re posted (see sidebar), or follow WiLt on
