Finally, I blinked out of my daze and was able to focus. I couldn’t see anything for the trees that surrounded us. There were corn and…wheat fields that were off a little ways. Trees completely covered my vision the further she went up the road. Great. This was a fucking horror movie in the making. Girl gets kidnapped, taken to the middle of nowhere and eaten by crazy cannibals… News at eleven. Fuck. Something told me we were no longer in Oz… that ship had sailed. This did not look like Texas. Where in the fuck were we? Sighing, I tried to concentrate on the surroundings. Memorizing every landmark I could distinguish. I was not becoming a late night news story. Fuck that shit.**Copyright © 2016 by Barb Shuler **content subject to change**
I’m a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth. Best of both worlds. I have the brass sass to keep up with my Texas sized temper. Living and working in both states I’ve learned a lot about hard work, adapting to your surroundings and making the best of the path that you have been led down. My grandma Dollie once told me I would know what I was meant to do when it happened. She was right, as always.
As with most book lovers, I am an avid reader. Reading has always been a hobby – a passion, really and a way to get lost in other people’s lives, their drama and other worlds. It’s a private movie in your imagination that you get to cast and navigate through, at your own pace. Reading helps to expand the perimeters of one’s mind. That is what got me into writing. Writing has been something that I have done since I was a kid. If I had paper, I was writing. Nine out of ten times it made no sense but what are words if they are not to be used to your advantage? Words are a part of us all. Why not use them, right?
During the day I work as a ‘desk jockey’ and help the residents of my county navigate themselves around our little, but not too little country town. By night I am either blogging, doing PA work for some of my favorite authors or fighting with the voices in my head. They can be stubborn at times. It’s a blessing and I am cherishing every moment. Tomorrow is never guaranteed so I want to make sure I live the day as fully as possible. For what is my creation, can become someone else’s treasure.
