The giver of words often recites within a grieving heart, that flows out with the deepest of agony and a willed smile. Just to reach someone in need of one, as myself too often to fill a page.
I appreciate any who take the time to read my work. I am brand new to Fanstory, and to writing as well. It has been cathartic for me as I heal from severe traumas & painful life?s experiences. I am wildly open to honest criticism and feedback so that I may grow more as a writer. There are a lot of amazing writers on here that I?m looking forward to learning from.
AJ McCall: We're glad to have you, Samantha!! -

Today is a new day the Lord has made. We should be grateful to Him for sparing our life. There are so many that did not wake up due to illness or accidents. I hope you all have a very happy and blessed day! May God bless you all!

I'm working on my final college project, which is my novel. At the moment, this is set in 1998/1999, and my character's cousins are bullies. I don't want to make them sound fake, or out of the realm of disbelief, so I guess I wanted to ask, how would you design a childhood bully? What kind of things could you see them saying, especially if they are related to the victim of said bullying? I want to have them at a somewhat lesser form of Stephen King's bullies as they are not that intense.
Also, the two cousins are siblings, a boy and a girl between the ages of 8-10.
AJ McCall: Sounds like an awesome project so far... I think your bullies should prey on the flaws of your character. Think about what your character struggles with the most and have the cousins focus on that. And one of my older siblings was born in between those years, and a lot of kids at his school used to tease him about how he smelled, calling skunk pits and smelly. Hope that helps... -
AJ McCall: *calling him -
Born and bred in Manhattan, Larry and Jane left the city to buy a cattle ranch in Wyoming. Months later, a friend flew out for a visit. "So, what did you name the ranch?" he asked.
"At first, we couldn't agree on anything," said the new cowboy. "We finally settled on the Double R Lazy L Triple Horseshoe Bar-7 Lucky Diamond Ranch"?
"Wow!" His friend was impressed. But looking around, he saw no cattle. "So where are all the cows?"
"None of them survived the branding."
AJ McCall: That's just tooooooo funny! -
Finally feeling human - but all of left side of face is blue and black and green...look like movie monster!
AJ McCall: Aww, hope you return to normal soon! -
I've been thinking about mastery/Bob. Does anyone know how he is doing?

I have been writing poetry for over fifteen years. It gives me a peace of mind and I look forward to publishing someday. I hope I can make a living off my work with diligent effort and reap the benefits my work has to offer. I hope to meet other writers and wish them much success. May our journey together be fruitful and prosperous. Thank you
AJ McCall: I think we all wish that same thing, Tata. You took the words right out of my mouth. -
I love writing poems pretty much about anything or about how I am feeling at the moment. I have also written a children's book written all in rhyme, I have not published it yet. Poetry and arts and crafts is how I release my stress for the day, it puts me in another world.
Years ago, I threw away a boomerang really hard. I've lived in constant fear ever since.
