I have been writing since I was in my early teens. I truly feel that it is a God given gift and I would love to be able to share it with the rest of the world. My work history/resume, doesn't include any freelance publications, and for me to even try and begin to explain, not only my deep passion for writing, but how I truly feel it could help and inspire so many people, I can only beg for an opportunity to share some of what I've writen over the years. I've had my own Real Estate business, I've done substitute teaching, I've managed two other businesses and I've always been a full-time mother. I'm certain you all hear this day in and day out, but I can PROMISE YOU that it would be SO well worth your time if you please give me an opportunity to share with you, (what I've heard others tell me nearly my whole life), that I NEED TO GET MY SONGS/POEMS IN THE RIGHT HANDS AND THEY WOULD BE NUMBER ONES! I can promise you faithfully, being famous or rich is something I couldn't care less about. I just want to show my children that if you set your mind to something you can do anything. My twelve year old tells his friends all the time that his mom's going to be a famous songwriter one day. All I want is to be able to get by in this horrible economy right now. PLEASE just give me a chance. I can't stand feeling like I'm bragging on myself, but I don't know how else to put it, (without writing a short story-and this is supposed to be a resume), please forgive me for rambling...I'm just excited....I have some REALLY GOOD STUFF, and it would be SO WELL WORTH YOUR TIME to please allow me the chance to share it with you. THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH!!! GOD BLESS YOU!!!
