Dear fellow writers,

I haven't written in a while. I'm sorry about that. My life is so chaotic at times. No wonder I'm a writer. I just somtimes want more out of my life than I have to get. I have such big dreams and high hopes and wonder to myself why have them when you don't even have a job? I never realized or even imagined I'd be without work or money but most importantly without a home and food. Well I can't say I'm without a home. I'm staying in a motel. Me and my boyfriend sold our home for $2000. We finished paying off lot rent, got a uhaul for $130 and bought a months worth of motel. They pay monthly down here. So I have a home for a month. But we still don't have a car yet. Luckily we have two monthly bus passes. Please pray for me my friends. We really need this job at Kohls. Our interview is tomorrow. If we can get a job and work for a few weeks we should be able to get the car before winter hits. If you've ever gone a winter without a vehicle you'll know how I feel. It sucks. But I've seen worse. So please just think of me when you get in that car to drive to work feeling like it's too much work. Just imagine having to walk instead of getting the luxury of a vehicle. Think of the woman with out wheels. (That's me.) I'll be somewhere in the background as I've always been in my life. I'll be smiling and waving my hands hoping somebody notices. Someday you'll see me. Though my hopes and dreams are big beyond measure, My pocket book is empty right now. Someday you'll see me and I'll be shining bright, a proud and accomplished actress on the big screen. I know it's a big dream and I'm a woman without a life. But sometimes even us little people deserve a break right? So keep an eye out for me. I'm the woman they write about in the storybooks. I'm that starving artist and someday my dream will come true, a true life fairytale come to life!!!
Until then I remain your sincere and forever true writer,
