See, the “THING” about writing is…

There’s this strange thing that happens when you release the words in your mind and heart, the words that flow through your soul. Something happens when the ink of your favorite pen permeates paper, when your fingers drum the keys on the keyboard, when the movement of your lips and tongue conspire to form sound… you allow your words to morph into an entirely new creation. Your words transform into something more than a thought, something much bigger. In a sense, your words become real. Your words take on an actual physical shape. From that moment forward there are endless possibilities for them. You can store them to refer to in the future; but there is something more important you can do with your words, something that can ultimately change the world… you are able to share them.

I have been writing for most of my life. I have so many journals that document memorable moments in my life. My first boyfriend, my first love and subsequent heartbreak, my first party, many struggles between my family and I, and so much growth throughout the life that I have lived so far. I have always enjoyed the feeling of a pen in my hand and how it feels when the tip drags across the paper. This electronic version of my materialized words is something very new to me. I have been hesitant for years, but after reading a blog the other day that touched my soul… I feel the need to add my words to the online environment so that maybe one day my words may touch another as hers did mine.


A proud momma to Pedro, a gorgeous Cane Corso, American Staffordshire Terrier fur-baby. I've recently adopted little Oakley... a Great Pyrenees, German Shepherd, Pit mix puppy and little Oliver, an animated orange kitten. I was proudly raised in the middle of cornfields, barefoot, playing in the dirt. I have grown to appreciate all of God’s land, all that occupy it, and any way I can stay creative on it... including writing.
