Welcome, warriors! And welcome to SnipSuns and anyone else who wanders in. Here we are, July sliding on the downside! I think our heatwave is to cool off this week, into the low 80s ~sigh~ Hope the weather is improving where you are. :-)
Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly blog-hop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at Weekend Writing Warriors, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between 12:00 noon Saturday, and 9:00 AM Sunday EST. Then we visit each other, read, comment, critique, encourage--all those great things that do a solitary writer's heart good.
Set up: Marissa is homeless and delusional. She keeps a journal of how her dreams make her feel, and her feelings about her daily struggles often get into the journal, too. Keeping the journal is at the request of Rayanne, a church volunteer counselor. This is the transition between Marissa staying at a homeless shelter for women, and moving on to a better arrangement.

I haven't met the other two people I share the house with yet, but I know I'm fighting a lack of trust. You tell me that we are all children of god, Rayanne, and that we should love one another. Well, I've seen some pretty terrible things that people do, enough to make me believe we live in a godless world. There is no god looking out for the homeless, for the crazy, for the hungry.
I don't know...maybe there is a god, but I don't know why people pray to him, because he never stops anything bad from happening.
I have lived under bridges and in subways and have existed on the fringes of society for so long, but you know what? I am not crazy, and with or without a god, I'm finding my way back.That's it. What jumps out at you, good or bad ? I'd love to hear it and am truly grateful for every bit of criticism, opinion, and shared wisdom. Thank you so much for visiting! Sundays are extra busy for me right now, so it might take me several days to return visits, but I will. Have a great week, all!
