Now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped-turned upside down. And I like to take a minute so just sit right there, So I’ll tell you how I became the Prince……Well I’m no prince. But I just couldn’t resist such an awesome intro.
Well anyway, about me……I was born a writer. I started off with my red, red, blue paper which was later upgraded to college rule. I didn’t realize I was any good at it until middle school when I remixed the infamous “Roses are Red, Violets are Blue” poem in class one day. Everybody loved it. So I kept writing because it felt good to have people liking something that I did. As I got a little older and mature, so did my writing. In high school, my favorite holiday was Valentines Day because the guys use to pay me to write personal poems for their girlfriends. It was then that I realized that I COULD get really personal with my writing, so I did just that. I began to write about my inner most feelings. The kind of feelings that you don’t share with just anyone. They have to be very close and very special to get to this type of info. So these particular writings were kept Top Secret, or so I thought. One of my friends was so impressed with my writing she stole it and showed it to my Senior Language Arts teacher, who then entered it into a contest. It wasn’t until I won first place that I realized what transpired. Although I should have been angry, I was very thankful to be surrounded by people who were inspired by me and my work. They also inspired me to keep writing and sharing my most special gift, MY Heart……………… Oh Yeah, I am one to keep promises, so about my name, Marmalade!! This name was given to me by a very very special friend (he know who he is.) I think he gave me this name because he thought I was sweet, or he was trying to create his own rendition of my real name. But I’m going to do him one better. I think he gave me this name because it best describes my writing. See Marmalade is a clear, sweetened jelly in which pieces of fruit and fruit rinds are suspended. My writing comes from the pieces of my heart created by the fruit and rinds of life that just came together to help create the BEAUTIFUL stories that hopefully will inspire everyone to follow their own HEART
