Hey Donetta

Profile Information

Who I am:
Who I am: I am a mother of 2 gorgeous girls, ages 11 & 7. I am a fiance', homemaker, poet. I am a writer, non-published, still, I write. I write poetry. I hand write in my journal daily experiences. I am a friend. A sister. I am at a point in my life of 36 years where I am ready to take all my poetry, rework them, and publish a small book. I am also at the point in my life where I would love to write a memoir. I have read memoirs, adore them actually. I feel with the experiences I have had I could help maybe one person choose a different path than I, perhaps get a few laughs, and I know anyone reading it will wonder how I am still alive. I am a beginner, quick learner, and ready to take my writing to the next step.

    Time has flown by this year.  It's hard to believe we are already into October.  I haven't had as much time to dedicate to this blog the way I originally wanted to.  I'll get there.  Anyone who does read my post, thank you for your patience.

Influences On Writing - My Town Influences Me

    I wanted to share a photograph that I took yesterday.  It is in my hometown and I took it with my cell phone.  Side note: Need a good camera.  My boyfriend and I went four wheeling through the mountains.  We literally live on a mountain.  Parrott is the name of my town, with so much history behind it, though now since the coal mines were shut down before I was born, the town is much more…

Mary K. is very talented, and Lit is a really well-written memoir. Cherry is still my favorite. :) OK, I'll try out Google + and see if I can figure all that out! I'll look you up and friend you. :)...I'd love it if you got a chance to take a look at the memoir! The two best places to get it right now are Kindle and Create Space. If you do, let me know what you think!

Hi, Donetta! Thanks so much for reading! I wrote poetry for 20 years before I wrote prose. Poetry is my first love. It should be honored! Good for you!  Yes, I especially love "Cherry." And "Lit" was very good as well, actually! Mary K. actually spoke to our class in grad. school. She's just as gutsy in person. :) I just got on Google + though I haven't a clue what to do with it! Feel free to friend me! Thanks again for reading. :)
