A sample from Book 1
I didn’t know what the hell silent abuse was! I didn’t even have a clear definition to what narcissists was! I did after the year 2012! The following is from the Introduction to Book 1 in My 12-Book Series on living through silent abuse and not even knowing it!
“At times, we deny our reality in order to survive. I can’t tell you about your life. I don’t know you. I only know me—my own experiences, and my own emotions that went with them. I can say this: as I traveled through the darkness in 2012 and 2013, I met others who have experienced the same or similar ordeal.
I’m not a shrink, nor do I hold a degree in any such field. I do hold a degree in journalism and I was a teacher for seven years. By nature, I’m prong to analyze, investigate, question, and be curious about everything.
I am a writer. My dream, always, was to write romantic/mystery novels. I actually wrote one which I self-published in 2004 and then republished it in 2012. It took me 20 years to complete. Although I wanted to write this kind of creative writing, the novel, with all my heart, God had a different plan for me.
My junior year in college, 1996, I took a creative writing class. By this time, I was already a master of self-study and had devoured everything I could get my hands on that concerned everything about writing. The class focused mostly on poetry. I could have taught that class.
The final objective for the class was to produce nine pieces of poetry or a short story. That was great! I already had a short story written so I decided I would turn it in but after a month of doing nothing for the class (after all I already had the required final written), my conscious got the best of me. Even thought I wrote the story (‘Supper’), I had it professionally edited almost a year before and that made me feel dishonest so I sat down and wrote the nine poems.
I didn’t think much about it. In fact, I discovered it wasn’t hard. I had wrote my first piece of poetry during my senior year in high school and I have always been a fan of all types of music. The simple five-finger line was easy and what made it even easier was the tap of my foot as I wrote. Poetry just seemed way too easy and I just accepted the fact that I wouldn’t get a high grade because I was a NOVELIST and not a poet! (My first novel titled Answers at the time…later changed to Answers Awakening was already written.)
After finals, my professor who WAS a published novelist and poet, asked to see me in his office. Here it comes—I thought. Leave it to my normal over-thinking self. What he had to say—I was NOT even close to expecting.
Write more poetry. Start putting together themed chapbooks.
Those words completely caught me off guard. I think for a while I was a bit dumb-founded. Poetry! NO FREAKING WAY! I always had it in my head that poets were just wanna-be writers who couldn’t go the distance to write the prose needed to complete a novel. Boy! Was I wrong. God does have His methods.
That seed lingered in the back of my mind for years. I went on to continue writing poetry but privately—very privately. There was a journey I was to travel and little did I know, I would record it in the form of rhyme…..”
