She had a friend.

According to my profile, I joined ScribeSlice in 2012. I started writing here because my daughter told me about the site. I thought I would give it a go. I had been writing in a personal journal because I was trying to heal after the loss of my 4 1/2 year old son. It was a sanctuary for me.

Grief had stolen a vital part of my life and I needed to get back to the land of the living. Writing gave me hope and people's comments gave me purpose. A writer needs to have their works read because it gives us validation and feeds and nurtures the soul. We all write for our own reason.

I am an emotional person. I need to feel and I need to have an impact on other people. I am not stroking my ego as much as I am pursuing my purpose. ScribeSlice answered my call and now I hope that I am answering back. I don't want to see this site disappear. I am guilty of turning my attention on other things but I know that there is great value here if we want it to work.

And so I am asking for your help. Submit a story, a poem, a book, a lyric or a script. Send me a message and I will read it and give you my opinion because I know that this site is worth the effort. Let's try to build this site up to what I know it can be.

I have asked a couple of people to re-visit the site and submit a writing.

Thank you in advance!
