I was almost violated as a child.

When I was a child I had a lot of cousins. I have a large extended family. I was born here in the United States of America in Brooklyn, New York. I had a male cousin who was older get on top of me when I was  a tween. I was so scared he’d penetrate me but thank God I was able to get away. It wasn’t until I had a moment when it came rushing back to me. I had suppressed the memory. Believe it or not they were watching Playboy TV in a living room on a big screen television. I want to write for kids. I had someone tell me I had a gift to write for kids. My new writing teacher said I did so well on a difficult assignment. I was thrilled and she sent my graded lesson with smiley faces. The writing teacher I had before has retired since June 30, 2019. This is a new year and I am going to devote my time to finishing up the course and also revising my first three assignments and I am going to revise lesson 4. I did so well with lesson 5 when I revised it so I’m just waiting for Miss Coffelt to send my lesson back.
