Mom's Tree House Writing Club 4/8/2011

1. Describe the events that led to the first time your heart got   broken.
2. List the people that make up the pieces of you.
3. I love my best friend because….
4. Take a picture of yourself right NOW, What were you doing?  Explain why you have not washed your hair and why you are still wearing pajamas.

Since I can see bits of this fitting into the novel I decided to use #1 this week.

Thinking back on the roller coaster of my love life (well at least this one...) I realize the heart broken wasn't necessarily mine but in a way it was. I was young (high school) and new to the idea of romance and dating.  We were from different environments although we shared a love of music and were both passionate when it came to friendships. Not fully understanding each other and rushing into things freaked me out a little and rather than communicating my true feelings I broke his heart, in the process though I broke my own heart by not letting anyone else close for the next 2 plus years. I put up walls when it came to romance. Looking back on that year I can say we had fun together and luckily we have remained friends over the years. Hind sight is always 20/20 they say and as cliche' as it is , it really is true. Everything we experience teaches us something. While it took me a long time I really learned how critical communicating is in a relationship. I hope I can convey the emotions as I write of these experiences but still keep an open mind.
