INFORMATION
I love writing in a lot of different styles. I go from being sweet and sappy to mystery, from spiritual to the insane, from happy to sad, in verse, prose, poem, short story or whatever seems to pop into my mind at the moment. I love FanStory. You have reawakened my writing senses. I was in a mental slump for too long, And thank you for the access to FanArt. I love the awesome artwork to choose from that adds the perfect compliment to my words.
A special thanks to all those who view,rate,critique(and hopefully enjoy) my writings. Enjoy the ride with me! Thanks to Diane Golledge for my profile picture: "The Writer".

gramalot8: Hi everyone. Been awhile since I was on here. Tragically lost my 19 yr. old granddaughter 5 months ago. It's been very hard on us all. I haven't felt like writing or reading on here or anything. She is really missed. Hope I can "put my big girl panties on" and start again. Wish me luck. Want to catch up with all your poems and stories and start again myself. Thanks for listening.

    fingerfood: Losing a grand daughter has to be the toughest trial to go through. Now that you know she is happy in the next world your pain should be eased, although you will always love her and miss her.

gramalot8: feeling discouraged... not hearing much from my muse lately.... when I do write something that feel and KNOW is good.... not much response. Need new motivation

gramalot8: Haven't written on here in a long time. No one seems to read these, but, I guess it's ok. Just want to say how much I love reading all the poems on here. So many are so inspirational, some so funny, others calming, etc. Hope I can reach and touch others at some point as well. Whomever, thanks for listening.....

    Sally Carter: I read them, Gramalot; just sometimes there are so many sad messages from people I have never heard of, it gets hard to know where to stop. I love it here too!
