    1. Erika, thanks so much. I found it hard to talk about myself. I had to write that a couple of times. I am just so excited to be part of the e-magazine. You should enter some of your poetry in the next edition. I think the theme is “fear.” ❤

  1. ” I love writing with my computer and keyboard. The words flow from my fingertips in an almost stream of consciousness type of writing. I feel that I am more creative because I can type fast. I write much slower and that seems to impede my choice of words. ”

    You are like me lool. Let me summarise

    “Write with heart. Edit with pain.” 😛

    Well even I am not the native but I love English. :)) Right now I practice the cursive writing (embarrassed lol) but the reason is that I don’t want to lift my hand when i write … wanna write fast too. ; ))

    1. Good for you, Jade. Cursive writing is a gift. I was always told educated people have beautiful penmanship. Old fashioned ideas, now. American children are printing, not cursive writing. Such a sad thing. You keep practicing! I am proud of you! 😉💗
