Peace and Blessings,
I am a fortyish mother of two teenagers. I have a wonderful husband who inspires me daily. I fell in love with writing at a very early age. I entered and won my first and last poetry contest at age 7. (My grammie still has it!) I'd been quite selfish with my poetry since. More honestly I never thought anyone would be interested in reading it, so I used it as an healing process for myself. Upon encouragement from family and friends I am trying to open up and expose myself. They however want to know where the books and CD's are! I haven't the heart to tell them that although I've started several novels I've yet to finish one. Not to mention the one and only short story I've ever completed in my adult life, turned out not to be a short story at all! By joining this community I hope to sharpen my skills, be inspired and achieve growth as a writer. I've been deeply moved by what I've read so far and I respect the sincerity of each critique. I look forward to sharing my words and thought with you.
