  7. Writing is my outlet. Some people scrapbook. Some people paint. Some people play tennis. I write.

  10. writing to me...
    i am most definitely not a writer but when i do write it is when i am usually in pain. it is a way for me to express that which my heart feels. a way for me to be human. a way for my heart to speak when i can't find words to talk. and the weirdest thing happens, they come. i write best when i am sad.

  11. Joanne- That makes sense. I think the best writing comes when emotions are raw. And while you may not consider yourself a writer, you definitely tell stories with your photos.

  12. I love to write, but deep down, I think I really do it to make my mother proud. Nothing would thrill me more than to give her a published book, dedicated to her for her amazing role in my life.
