What can I say I absolutely love writing. When I was in the 5th grade a DARE officer came to my elementary school and told us they would be having an essay contest for the entire school and the winner would receive a special prize. All I could think was, Wow!, I had a pretty good chance of winning this. And what do you know… I read my essay in front of the entire school. The special prize was a medal. I guess that day my talent had officially been ‘discovered’. Later on in my teen years I actually wrote a lot of poetry and kept a diary. Guess what! I was an aspiring rapper but that never quite panned out. Some guy ended up getting away with $75.00 I gave him to enter a showcase that never happened. I tend to go with the flow so I didn’t pursue it any more after a couple of setbacks and lack of confidence in myself (not my rhymes). So what can I say, life happened, I had children and got married to seal the deal. I’m just having fun right now. Hopefully in the future a real job writing will work itself into my life. Writing is where I am confident and at my best.
