So now I have to try to make 600 words for this to be seen... Here goes.

I love writing for Vocal! I love reading other stories, I love learning new things, I love seeing into the bright minds of the world! I go on at least once a day to get my fill of creativity! I get inspired by all of you lovely people and reading your stories help me be a better writer!

I wanted a way to thank you and encourage you to keep on goin'! I feel we need a community to share in and maybe hear some criticism, but all in good spirits, of course. So why not make a Facebook group? I did! 

I want to share more material on my page where I feature my stories, to kind of mix it up a bit and keep my readers satisfied! I have been doing that, but I have no way of telling you I shared your story! Maybe you would like to share one of mine as a thank you?

We can help each other build our fan bases! We can support each other! We can give advice!

Log into Facebook to start sharing and connecting with your friends, family, and people you know.

Feel free to invite any friends that are creators as well! I have it set to a public group at the moment, I'm hoping that will work just fine. You can message me and let me know any suggestions you may have for rules or guidelines for the group, any fun ideas, anything you want! I'm a stay at home mom, so I am literally ALWAYS home.

Okay... Now I only need 350 more words...

I will type what comes to mind! Feel free to stop reading, as this has nothing to do with the group. I shall let me tired mind roam freely for a few hundred words!

There once was a young woman who had just become a mother. She was ever so happy with her beautiful baby girl. She did have some hardships, though. She has had to jump through many rings of fire to be the woman she is today. She is a lioness. Strong. Powerful. And she has one big bite!

This woman has shed many tears. Tears of happiness and tears of sadness. More sadness she feels. She tries to be the best mother she can be, but some days the darkness takes over and she, feeling weak and worthless, watches this woman become a savage. Howling at the top of her lungs, digging her claws into the dirt. Showing her teeth and sets up to lunge at her prey, but before the bloodshed, the lioness steps forward and the savage disappears.

The lioness is faced with her King and cub, searching for the loving mother, loving wife that she knows she can be. Feeling small and afraid of the monster she has become, she cowers in the darkness of her cave. Alone. She knows she is stronger than this. She knows she is good. She doesn't want the darkness to take over any longer.

She goes on a quest to find herself. The lioness now searches for the cure. She finds herself lost among the open world, once again, all alone. She finds a healer and gains the strength she needs to be a better version of herself. She is ready. Ready to be a better mother. A better wife.

She begins her journey home to her King and cub. Along the way, the lioness reflects on all she has learned, all she has overcome. She makes a promise to herself to be the best she can be. She makes a promise to always find the light. She makes a promise to fight harder every time she finds the darkness creeping up behind her.

The lioness arrives home to her family. A new woman shines through her dark past, no longer feeling worthless or alone. She is mighty. She is loved. She is a mother and a wife. She is a lioness.
