My good friend and fellow writer gave me an idea to write about today....Tell something about me in in 5 words. "I always believe in dreams." The dreams I have had for my life are not just dreams...they become real and tangible when I believe in them and work toward them. I wanted to be a writer...and after multiple searches I found the supportive environment I needed to give me the courage to try. So the dream became real for me, and even though I do not always faithfully submit my work I know the possibility of being published again still exists. It gives me the desire to write because I feel I still have a story to tell...something that is mine and that no one else can tell from the same perspective. My experience is uniquely my own...just like each writer has their own unique experience. It is like experiencing a piece of music...some hear the trumpets, some hear the drums, some hear the guitar. I hear the sounds of the music as a whole, the same way I see life...not as pieces of a whole, but as a whole with some exceptional pieces. These are the stories that haunt me and bless me with their need for telling.
