Breaking Free

Writers cope with the pen. We are better speakers this way. All of my life, I have struggled with third person. I am noticing that I am beginning to use the word I in place of Erine.

It's a scary thing when you begin to break through the layers. It's a scarier thing, when those same words that were used to hold you down want to come back up again. It's a beautiful thing, when you tear each word down, even if it's one word at a time.

I still recall the words and I am not afraid of utter them. These bitter words are now going to be public. They are the following:

1. Cow

2. Fat ugly legs

3. Accident

4. Retarded

5. Nice (double meaning)

These are the ones I'm ready to deal with. Thank you for your support. These word will be replaced.
