Daily Prompt: keeping up with the neighbors


I’ve never been what you call rich, when I was a kid I lived in a trailer. I wanted a house that didn’t roll or get chewed up by tornadoes, not to worry about things being turned off. I have that now, but being used to not having those fancy things and having simple desires makes it hard for me to answer this question. 

Even now that I have some money (still not rich but trying) I wouldn’t spend an arm and a leg on clothes or shoes, jewelry or make-up. No, I find that now I want things that are much more complicated, like time to do the things I want…. someone to spend time with me without the TV blaring in the background. Some quiet time to read, draw… or go to dinner… go for a drive. Someone to teach me how to do animation…  It’s not that I don’t have someone… I do; it’s just we have different ideas of fun and how to spend our time. Might be he feels the same way and we’re just not communicating not sure…. but that’s not the point of this prompt. 

Maybe I’m jealous of my friends who go out river rafting, to the zoo and out to dinner with friends? Maybe I’m old now and have different priorities? 

Okay…  nuff of that… Now just to focus on the material things!

I really really really wish I could go to a writer’s conference. I told one of my online friends about a conference, they went and even though they don’t even have a completed book yet, they have 4 publishers interested in their work! And to make things WORSE he went to work for the company putting on the conference!! *FACE PALM!!* I’m happy for him but I’m also honest enough to admit that I’m sooooooo incredibly jealous!  

I’ve not been able to afford to go to a writer’s conference yet. 😦 

I’ve got 2 books written and up on amazon.com and I’ve been busting my butt for a year now… no word from publishers.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
