Writing is fun. It is a great way to ‘get away from it all’ while you create your own world. Different types of writing promote different feelings. As you can imagine, writing a science report could very well make one feel exhausted and, dare I say, bored. Writing a love story might make one feel wonderful. Writing a comedy could make one laugh so hard they might just pee on themselves.

And the examples could go on and on.

Sometimes it is fun to write like a child. To put your hands on the keyboard, place your mind in a child’s mind, and just start typing. For me, this brings forth joy and remembrances of when life was

Sisters by Chance, Friends by Choice

“You have no right checking up on me!” he screams.

“Stop it! Both of you!” Ashley yells, as she stands up.

“Don’t tell me to stop!” He stands up and moves towards her. “I am not the one sneaking around in someone else’s past. I don’t have to stop! I have every right to be pissed! Your sister is sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong!” he is screaming at her.

“Knock it off! She is only trying to protect me! Besides, you haven’t answered her question. It is true!?! Now, I want an answer!” she says angrily.

“What!?! Now you too! How dare you!”

Julie steps closer to him and yells, “Well!?! Answer the question!! Is it true!?! She has a right to know

What is....

...the best most unusual thing that has ever happened to you?

My BEST most unusual:

It was a Tuesday morning and the day had started out a little off. I was already stressed about tons of things, both professional and personal. This particular Tuesday I had to stop by the grocery store on my way to work because it was my turn to bring 'Tuesday Treats'; lucky me!! I could have gone to

The Fortune

This is a small portion of one of the stories contained in So, Whatcha Think?

“At the end of our meal, the waiter brought the check and fortune cookies. You know how they always put the check on the little black tray and just place the cookies on top?” Sharon asked.

“Yeah…and?” Mary said, sounding a bit confused.

“Well, it was odd. The check was on the little black tray but the waiter placed a tea cup in front of each of us and our fortune cookies were inside.”

“That’s weird. Maybe that place is just trying to be more personal to their customers.” Mary said.

“I wasn’t sure what to think. I opened my fortune cookie as Seth was getting his card to pay the bill. I couldn’t believe what the fortune said.” Sharon's voice fell off a bit as she spoke.

“Did it say you had found your handsome prince?” Mary said with a sweet smile.

“No, it said. ‘Your life is in danger! You must leave the city immediately! Say nothing to anyone! We will contact you. Remember…say NOTHING!’” Sharon's voice was almost a whisper.

“What!?! Was it some kind of cruel joke?”

“I just froze and I read it again. When I looked up, Seth was staring at me.”

'"Something wrong? Didn’t get the fortune you wanted?' He asked me.

“I could see out of the corner of my eye, those two men were now watching me very intently. I wasn’t sure what to do. So, I just said. ‘Have you ever played the lucky numbers from your fortune on the lottery?’”

“He laughed. ‘Those fortunes are just for entertainment you know.’”

“I said. ‘Yeah, I know. I was just thinking how wonderful it would be to win the lottery.’ “I didn’t know what else to say. I just slipped the fortune into my purse.” Sharon opened her purse and took out the fortune. She handed it to Mary to read.

“Oh My God! Sharon! What does this mean!?!” Mary said very shocked.

“At the time I didn’t know…but now I do.”

Mary was just staring at Sharon in complete disbelief.

“That look you have on your face is exactly how I have felt since reading the fortune.” Sharon said, her voice filled with sadness and fear.

What happened to Sharon after she received the fortune was unbelievable! Want to know what happened?
