Sunday Scribbling...then and now

Once, I only visited a handful of personal blogs.
Now, I'm checking out new blogs that will prompt me to write. And produce something. So, here's my contribution to Sunday Scribblings:

Once, I was a spoiled, spoiled little girl who basked in the love her parents showed her.
Soon, my world came crashing down around me and I was forced to confront a hideous crime.
Then, I was filled with incredible hatred.
Now I feel pity. And regret. And sadness.

Wow Angie - what a great beginning. I'm intrigued! I want to be a writer more than anything but I'm also scared to write at the same time...I find just making a start -even if it is just a sentence a day - is better than not doing anything. What a start you have made! I hope you plan on writing more soon. :)

Good for you! If you want a 'bigger' challenge (bigger because there is a word limit) try 55 Fiction Friday at The Wordy Bitch (http://wordybitch.blogspot.com). Trying one of these out is one of my New Year's Resolutions (it falls under 'Exercising my brain more often.')

Welcome to Sunday Scribblings.

I agree with others, this scribbling is intriguing....

I'm also intrigued. I will be interested to see if you give us more info though I have a guess what this story is about.

Laura said...

Very well written. Because I know what you have been through and why my heart really goes out to you. I feel that this experience could have broken so many people yet you have become a strong woman with grace! You are wonderful!

Since I know a little bit about what the crime you are talking about, I am completely overwhelmed by the last line. It makes me hurt and I don't even know all the details.

Hey Angie!
You know, I have always wanted to hear your side of the story instead of all of the nasty newspaper articles. I've always been a little too scared to ask, in fear that it would bring back all of the pain for you. I am looking forward to hearing more, maybe for my healing too. I would love to share my side of the story sometime. I am so amazed on what a strong and beautiful person you have become, and sincerely admire all that you have accomplished. Take Care always!

I can only guess what this post is related to and I am so very sad for you. Whatever it is that happened in your life when you were just a little girl must be horrific.

What a first entry for Sunday Scribblings. Powerful and succinct, and hopefully a step towards greater peace.

Laurie M. said...

Powerful, Angie. By what I know about you so far, I'm assuming this is your Mom. I can't imagine what a horrific experience this was for you. I am amazed that you can find words to express yourself.

Have a wonderful New Year!

Angie,
Have you ever written about this in detail because I know vague bits but not the story? I would love to know more about this hugely defining time in your life. I am sure it had a lot to do with the amazing woman that you have become.
