It's All Good. Trust Me.

Jerry Waxler, M.S., counselor, teacher, author, columnist, makes a very good point in his post, Memoir Writing Lessons From the Heart, "I love character development in a book. By the time I reach the end I’m hoping some lesson has been learned. Because this is such a satisfying payoff for me, as soon as I recognize the character flaw I start anticipating how the person will grow." Hence, the purpose in writing mine.

I want to make a difference in others' worlds who share (or are simply interested) in my pain....because entering the system (becoming a ward of the state) doesn't have to mean the end. So many years ago, life became bleak. First, this was 25+ years ago and second, I don't want to lead the reader into a hole of nothingness. What good writer would. I want to show my audience from whence I came and plunk him/her down at the foot of the rainbow in the end. This, I believe is a place anybody can land if they choose.

Many factors take me from one beginning to a particular end -- where I am now. But, mostly it is the choices I have made --- coupled with my past --- that have molded me into who I am.

It's all good. Trust me...and allow me to take you there.

Gotta go. Need need to get more of it down onto the pages. Must run. Much love.

Happy St. Valentine's Day, all.

You are so right- we are all faced with so many choices and our choice is what shapes our future - those choices are all we really have control over.

I can't wait to read your life story!

Hey Rhonda, haven't been here for a while so I'm getting caught up. I thought you might like reading this author's book and seeing his blog.

Sounds like you're zooming right along, congrats! I'm doing the same with my book and will contact you to see if you want to do some reading soon.
