The Writer ...

Once upon a time, there was a little girl in fifth grade.  It was that time where all the kids in the class were thrown spelling tests every week.   Each week this little girl gave into her fear of the written word, getting those big letter F's on each test.

One day ... the teacher knelt beside that little girl and looked her in the eye...  she said, "You know, you are going to have to learn to spell someday."

That little girl, already a complete smart ass ... total family trait... looked back into the eyes of a teacher she felt disliked by anyway, and said "Why?  It's not like I'm gonna be a writer some day!"

Just a few short years later, that little girl walked into a house at the age of thirteen and it spoke to her.  It spoke deeply and heavy.   A story spun so effortlessly into her soul that she couldn't deny it.  She was no longer alone...

..... three others were enveloped with in her...  and many more followed.....

In that moment, KARMA came along and bit her in the ass ..

....... joke was on her, turned out she was a writer after all.

That little girl, was me.
