MsRefusenik is a full-time freelance writer She loves everything about reading and writing. There is no time when she is writing. One minute it is 10 a.m. and the next it is 5 a.m.

There is no thrill for her like that of writing something that she knows has hit the mark dead on. When she can shut off the computer, saying, "There, I've nailed it." Is there any greater satisfaction?

She read a book on finding out what your true purpose in life is, and, guess what? She really found out. You do some written exercises, some deep thinking and meditation and with some work and help from your inner wisdom and Divine Spirit, whom I choose to call God, there it is. Mine is: To be my authentic self, and to share my vision and dreams in creative, loving ways that will have a positive impact on the world and its people.

(I thought it important to say the "world" and "people," because if I just said world, you'd get the idea that I would spit on homeless people hitting me up for booze money while I was out protesting against BP or something like that.)

MsRefusenik believes the world will be saved when enough multisensory people transform themselves from being fear-driven to having a loving consciousness that will lead to peace and harmony ruling this universe.

MsRefusenik: Spiritual Echo Three of my favourite writers are Mastery, who writes a brilliant story with such heartfelt compassion for every child he is breathing life into that one could almost believe that he is a reincarnation of each of his characters. he rarely posts that every phrase and every comma is in place and as I have neen following his book I het extremely pissed, and I tell him, that it takes weeks between chapters and postings.

I walked beside two authors, Forestport12 and Witherton who just completed their novels. Stan (Forest) is a lyrical writer who makes the wind whisper by your ears when you read. Cheryl (Whither) has just completed a memoir starting from a dirt poor Mexican girl smack in the middle of Mormon country and her seduction or explosion inot her own Cinderella story that went horribly bad. My investment in their stories (for my own pleasure and tears) went beyond a reader, I became a participant in their grievious struggle to pen the story and surprisingly bits and pieces of their style started to float into my posts.

Don't kid yourself, of course it matters if you win. Until I started I thought that I was a make believe writer. I tore up paper and loved gel pens. I did take a correspondence course years ago and that helped me immeasurably, but I was still feeding on the feedback, waiting for the tutors approval. I took courses at a college and dropped out when I realized that most people just wanted to stand and read their stuff out loud and get approval. This site isn't that much different, but the discipline of getting responses, the Spag Queens that will kill you for bad punctuation (and by the way they are right, although I cursed them and decided they were all withered old school teachers who didn't appreciate creativity)Every one of these moments, if you take yourself seriously (and I do mean all parts of your life) will help you define why you want to, need to writ

Hey, I was so disgusted at some of the fowery poetry on site one I won a contest and actually peed myself laughing. But trust me I've posted a lot of mediocrity as well (including the poem) Just a post script to your reply.

    Rain Chapman: Hello writerly Pal, I thought I'd say hi here on FS so you would know who I am, lol.
    Take care and don't forget if you have any questions about my stuff on FB, ask away!

    MsRefusenik: Note: Rain is not only one groovy lady that I met on Facebook, she is a much-reviewed (very favorably always) published author who recently got a movie trailer for the book produced. It is elegant too--very beautiful with romantic music and scenes. It is actually understated if you can believe that about a trailer. The book must be quite romantic and sexy. I must find time to read it soon.

MsRefusenik: Come visit me at Facebook and take a look at all the beautiful and weird photos I've collected so far on the web. Some photographer from an undetermined foreign country keeps adding to my gallery too. there: My Facebook Page

MsRefusenik: I want to thank the great writers here at FS for helping me with my tedious writing, especially the poetry which I know I'm not much good at but won't give up on because I love it so. The wonderful "real" poets and other writers here keep giving me positive feedback and honest suggestions that help me learn, as though I were somekind of real poet myself. Thank you all. You know who you are.
