Temptation

Temptation. It lurks everywhere. I'm learning to overcome the desire to cross over but it has taken so many years. I want to be a positive, productive individual. Not easy when you have a criminal background. All my education pretty much went down the tubes. I am currently working on expunging my record. All my charges are before 2003..I do love waiting tables and I am a great waitress. I just have so many other job skills and it's rather frustrating to know that "this" is it. My secret dreams, like many of us, is to get published. I have a story, I know how I want to tell it. Most stories regarding addiction are pretty much the same. I want to tell it from a family viewpoint. The roller-coaster ride we take everyone along with us. That is the part people don't understand. No one can take a hostage like we can. Even though it is my past I can still feel it and write about it like it was an hour ago. It has been a long wild ride and I still have my sanity ( that's questionable)lol. Just remember when you see a snake, even if it promises not to bite you, don't pick it up, it is still a snake...Peace..

There is a non-advertising magazine called "The Sun" which I have read for awhile which accepts reader stories, poems, photos, and true-life writing to publish in their mag. They pay for stuff they publish and encourage all to submit. I don't usually see it on newsstands but a search will probably reveal a way to connect with them.
Just a thought. . .

One step at a time. Get the rcord clean, get the rough draft done and then see what comes from there. And snakes won't bite if you don't bite them first.

Goatman- Right now I am actually hand-writing a notebook of prose and whatnot, just jotting things down in this "notebook" of mine. Thanks for the advice, and I will do a search...Hope things are well in your world.

WM- See, now you are going to make me google whether or not snakes bite first, damn you! Leave it to you to be all practical and logical. Must be that maturity thing.....lol, love you dear!

I admire anybody who can steer clear of temptation. I am not too good at it myself. I'm my own worst enemy.
