I describe myself as as possessor of many gifts.
Since I’m not a big fan of reading lengthy bio’s, I decided to spare you all the space as well…at least in that area.
First things first. I AM a Writer. Reason being, because that is the very first gift I ever discovered that I knew for a fact I did better than anything else.
I was 12 yrs old in the 7th grade & didn’t have a clue what my worth was in gold or grain until I took a standardized state test. Up to that point, I struggled with the writing process something terrible & I just didn’t understand how to write an essay & the whole structure of it all.
WELL…when it was time to take the test, I was so nervous because I didn’t know how to write an essay for the writing portion of the test.
I just said “eff” it & wrote whatever came to my mind, however it came to my mind. When the test results came back a few months later, my teacher told me I was one of the few in the entire 7th grade class that got a perfect score on the writing portion. Clearly, I thought this was a mistake, because I was certain failure was mine! But nope. So when it finally sunk in that I was able to make a top score & didn’t even know what the heck I was doing….I got an epiphany right there in my chair: “I’m gonna write a BOOK one day! A bestseller!”
So I started journaling /documenting my life events ever since, and the story is still being told. I think at this point I have at least 3 or 4 books by now!
I’m in the process of drafting autobiography for myself, as well as my mother who has been wrongfully & unjustly imprisoned in the Federal Prison system for the past 23 years of my life. I have gone through many trials as a result of my mother being somewhat absent from my life & intend on sharing those stories of tragedy & triumph.
I really thought when I got my own website & started blogging I would know EXACTLY what I was going to be writing about.
I was wrong. So, bear w/me as I feel my way through this virtual expression of some of my truest realities.
