I am a single mother who has always been laughed at for my work despite agencies contacting me and wanting to help me publish my kids short stories. I gave up! The last 3 yrs someone very special came into my life, and got me through some things in my life that I never faced head on. I showed her a poem I wrote yrs ago, and from there she told me to express myself in writing. I tried and felt I lost the touch, but then when night through my council w her, afterwards; I wrote her a letter with the headline, "you wanted me to write, here you go" and from that moment on my writing continued, both dark and happy. Since I found some healing and have grown, I'm finding my soul/life purpose and seeing where it will take me now. I was 1st inspired by my children who are all grown now, but as I said I had given up. So here I am, I know you will like what you read and I hope it leads me to a great writing career someday soon.
