"I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty."
-Edgar Allan Poe

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
-Maya Angelou

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
-E. E. Cummings

"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words."
-Robert Frost

Rookette: I just wanted to drop in to say thank you to everyone who has reviewed my posts and those of you who have personally helped me to become a better writer. Admittedly I have a long way to go but it's a much more enjoyable journey with all of you!! Thank you :)

Side note...I'm a bit behind on reviews but should be able to get to them all this weekend.

Good night all :) xoLeslie

Rookette: I am new to the site and writing for that matter. I am amateur at best. I write to get my feelings out, I write because I'm not always great at saying what's on my mind. My pieces are for me...some will be ok...others you may wonder where my thought process is. If it's out there it's because I was tired of having it in here. I write to help myself get past things but if someone else can enjoy it or get something else out of it...why not right? I've had a VERY warm welcome and am excited to continue to grow. <3 xoLeslie

    Ideasaregems-Dawn: Welcome to FanStory, Leslie, and if what I just read is any indication, you are going to love it here. There are many gifted writers, and you'll be amazed how quickly you will hone that talent of yours just by reading their work and writing yourself. :)
