About My Good Friend "Amanda"...
A few months ago I pestered my good friend Amanda to send me a small story about herself. I am just now getting around to it ;( I think Amanda is neat person and a great writer. She's also very beautiful. Here is Amanda's story in her own words.
There's not a lot to tell about me. And I'm really kind of closed off from other people.
Basic story - I grew up in middle tn in a house built in the early 1800's. Actually, my bedroom was the original bedroom of the house and the previous owner at least had died in there in the 1920's sometime. Good bedtime story mom. Lol
I have a younger brother, and we had a semi normal childhood. Mom and dad were good parents. We mainly played outside, in the woods and creeks, as we lived on a dead end gravel road with no neighbors, except for our two cousins about a half a mile away.
I've been writing forever. I even wrote back then, and I have all my journals from age 5 and up. Stories and life happenings alike.
I've always attested that our house was haunted, hearing things, seeing things, feeling things. And my brother used to see The Man in the White Suit.
I'm attempting to get my engineering degree and will graduate this summer, but all I want to do is write and see my name in type and have people read my stories. That would be the best life of all. And for me to live off by myself somewhere in the woods or on a lake, I love the outdoors, and just not have to deal with people on a day to day basis. Except for perhaps my Demon. I don't mind him. And he keeps me sane most of the time.
