Hi, I'm Laura. I love reading and writing so much that I ended up with a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in creative writing. I don't post or write nearly as much as I used to, but I'm doing the 30-day poetry writing challenge this year!

Yes, sort of! You know, I have no girl cousins on the Twitchell side of my family! (No sisters either!) : )

Actually I've never celebrated Halloween - It's starting to get more popular in Australia now, but I think that's commercially driven.
I know the 'treat part', but who does the tricking?

Hi Laura! Doug and I have been doing some singing. He told me I have a nice voice, and I thought he was complimenting me, until I realized...No, he's actually complimenting himself. :P

Perhaps I will write a limerick now, since I'm logged in. :)

Laura -

I'm glad you enjoy them!

Yes, every story is taken from real life experiences I've had as an interpreter, with very little changed. That's why the names did have to change though - patient privacy.

I love my job and there really are so many great insights that come from it - those are some older stories since I haven't written in a while but I'm going to be putting up some new ones soon.

Beth :)

This is a test of the emergency broadcasting system. This is only a test. Had this been a real emergency, a great deal of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth would have ensued.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled work day.

I'm not sure if this will help any but the song I was listening to on cmt when I wrote mine was 'the call'. I think I took more the idea of an example scene followed by chorus, then scene, then chorus than I did the melody. I can't remember who sang it though.

I wish I had some way to convey the music to you, I keep hearing it in my head but have no idea how to write it down.

Yes, I'm a teacher. Seventh grade English and Social Studies.

Thanks again for reading my stories and for your kind comment.

Write on.

Hey Laura,

Thanks so much for your kind comment on my writing. It means a great deal to me and made my week.

Your writing is quite impressive. I especially like "January" and "An Empty Room". Great word choice and visualization, with a touch of humor. I also love "Fibonacci Food". (BTW, I don't blame you for not wanting to teach English. It can be quite frustrating at times. Especially teaching middle school :)

Thanks again. Write on.

Have you tried typing “the sound of snow” into Google search? Your poem comes up near the top of the second page. I just thought it was interesting, considering how hard people work to get rated up in Google searches.

I actually haven't been to this site for quite some time. But I get email notifications when someone sends me a message. I put a couple up for your consideration. J.

Hi Laura...

I currently have on file 486 poems that I've written. Of that 486 there must be 4, maybe 5, that are worth posting :-)

Thanks for the message.
