Begin Again
http://www.fanstory.com/begin_again
Location: Carol in Illinois
Gender: Female
Born: September 4th
Interests: Writing and my family
Member: Premier Author
Joined: May 2009
INFORMATION
Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

I've just recently began to dabble in writing again after a tsunami of life changing events in the past years. I hope to discover, once again, a new beginning in the world of imagination and the pleasure of writing.
FAVORITE QUOTE
The greatest gift of all is the love of family.

    Begin Again: I am grateful to those who read and enjoyed my story. I am thankful for the red ribbon too! Most of all, though this story was fiction, it followed a similar path as my son's life. I will always be grateful for the medical field that saved his life. Smiles to all!

    Begin Again: Thank you to those who voted for me in the contest "Why I write?" I appreciated your thoughts on my story. We all have our reason for writing, each of them personal land dear to our hearts. Life and emotions dictate to me the stories but my passion for bringing a story alive never changes.
