    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...

    Let's face it. We're writers

    because we love words. We love the way they build worlds and convey emotions. We love the way they roll off our tongues like succulent morsels and flow from our keyboards in an ever streaming river of thirst-quenching ideas. Words are our babies and one of the toughest things we...

    I LOVE writing. But since my depression I have

    been having a really hard time finding the motivation to write. I have about three different stories, two of which I have outlined into future books as well. But I can't get out of this funk and start writing. I hate seeing this awesome story I have written and being too afraid...

    a consistent one, and definitely not a published one - but it's my greatest passion and I will chase after it for the rest of my life.

    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...

    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?

    So this time we're on a different stage.

    When you told me that you love me. And then later you said you didn't know how you feel and that it takes ages for you to fall for someone. That should've been my cue to leave. But still I hold on too some tiny glimmer of hope. And I don't even know why. I want to wait... I am...

    There is nothing more rewarding

    than seeing your words inspire a reaction from a reader. When the reaction is more powerful than I anticipated from a simple rough draft I remember why I love to write.
