    I love it more than anything,

    A Letter to the American South:I am a proud

    daughter of the South. Now, before you take up your arms in defense against my upstart Confederate ways, know this: what I am about to write, has nothing to do with Confederate sympathies, condoning slavery, or anything to that effect. I despise that part of my heritage. However...

    You know what makes me nuts?

    I'm gonna tell you. It's when I've been stuck on a scene for months. MONTHS. Then something or someone throws out a little spark that ignites an idea in my mind and all of a sudden I realize I'm going in the wrong direction in that scene. All I had to do all along was...

    This story starts off like most.

    .. It's a Cinderella story of sorts. A young boy who always saw beauty, surrounded by evil in a world full of magic. This story isn't pg though and there was nobody there to save him. No carts made out of pumpkins, the only thing carved was created on his wrist. There were only...

    Words shattered my soul.

    And in the worst possible way. They were not from others. But from my own mouth. The hole that I dug with the power of my speech. Never could I reach peace. Alone and lost I never loved myself. Until the day I learned to accept myself.

    Really, A Writer?
