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 Each week, participants sign up HERE at Weekend Writing Warriors, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between 12:00 noon Saturday, and 9:00 AM Sunday EST.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: This week follows immediately after last week's post which is HERE (if you want to read it). 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 a church volunteer counselor, Rayanne. Izzy is at the desk of the shelter during the night shift. This is the transition between Marissa staying at a homeless shelter for women, and moving on to a better arrangement.
*note You might encounter creative punctuation :-)
Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter why, just that I sure am glad Izzy was able to wake me because there was a good day waiting for me. I don't have to tell you why, Rayanne, but I do want to tell you thanks again for being in my corner and making this happen. The room in the church-house is more than I could ever have hoped for. Having my own space with a bed, and a desk where I can write in this journal is, well, I keep looking over my shoulder to check if someone is peeking at what I'm writing. Privacy is something I'll have to get used to again. I'm not complaining about it. I'll never take privacy for granted again. I'll never take a lot of things for granted again.
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!
