As a writer, my ultimate goal is to express myself with my words and hope they touch someone.  I will always give my best.  Readers, please remember when you’re reading a book, short story, poem or any piece of work that touches you, that’s what makes it worth your time.  Writers don’t make mistakes to offend or outrage.  If I could give you perfection, I would.  I know I try but my mistakes are a reminder that. . .


Don’t read my book if you expect perfection,

You will be sorely disappointed.

If you want words written by a cold, unfeeling machine,

Read a book written by a software program.

I am human.


Flesh and blood,

I have feelings,



I am human.


I’m not perfect,

I am not sorry I “wasted” your time,

You got something more valuable,

A part of me,

I am human.


If you don’t like my words,

That’s your problem, not mine.

I will write, whether you read or not.

It’s who I am,

I am human.


A flawed diamond

Is still a diamond.

    Oh Tami, you’ve nailed what I so often want to say. None of us are perfect. We all make an error or two. As a dear friend once told me,”They last guy who was perfect was crucified”.

    We write because it is part of us. We don’t force people to read what we write, but we love that they do.

    Keep writing, Tami; I’ll keep reading.

      I’m glad someone else feels the way I do! Thanks for your encouragement, Marion. I’m so glad you’re going to keeping writing…you’re to talented not to. Thanks again for your comment.
