    Big Girls Don't Cry Seventy-Five - Did You Try?

    Did You Lie? Under Miss Wilson's care, I blossomed in second grade. No, my grades didn't come to the top of the class instantly, and I struggled for everything I achieved. But I made it a somewhat "point of honor" to not be lazy and daydreamy, flake off, and get "F's" anymore...

    There's nothing like passing a few hours just

    getting lost in a plot while typing it down! I need to start writing more again as I used to in the past. I posted a few chapters online and actually got great feedback but then things got in the way like they often do and I never did finish that novel. My favourite spot for...

    The Legend of Chickenfoot
