Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Writer's Workshop: Book cover

This is the story of a girl. This is the story of a girl’s dreams, thoughts, accomplishments and failures. This girl is not remarkable in any sense.

This is the story of a girl growing up in a small town, with two parents and a younger sister. This is the story of her big hopes for herself and others; some of them are realized, some are not. Yet, this girl is special.

This is the story of a girl’s journey into womanhood, while clinging to the child inside. This is the story of a girl discovering how special she is.

This post inspired by:
Mama's Losin' It
Prompt #5: Imagine your life is now a book. In 100 words, write the blurb for it. (It’s what people will read on the back cover.)
