I enjoy expressing myself through writing. When I was a little girl I wrote & illustrated a fictional short story about a bear named Becca & her family. I still have the little book bound by pastel pink yarn. It’s one of the most precious memories from my childhood. I now write mostly from my life’s experiences (Narrative) such as my hobbies, cooking, my religion, my singleness & purity, my divorce & how I overcame that difficult situation, & on occasion I have written poetry. I have a blog that I share musings on as well. Reading writings, such as Poems and Song lyrics have a calming effect on me. I also enjoy writing letters to friends and family that live far away. My Grandpa loves It when I write him letters updating him on what’s been going on in my life.
