About Me

I have been writing since I knew how. Before that I would just draw pictures to tell a story. My true passion is poetic lyrics. That is mostly what I am inspired to write. I have been dabbling in other forms of literature too. I love to challenge myself with a form or subject that is not my normal.
As for my life, it is nothing out of the ordinary. Well, at least not now it isn't. My past is a little extraordinary but that is a whole story in itself. Of course, a little bit of my past shows up in my pieces because your past helped create you to how you are at this moment.
I am kind of cheesy in the aspect of, well; I love everybody from the bottom of my heart. That doesn't mean that I show it perfectly all of the time. But I'm aware that it is there and so I cannot deny it. I am an optimistic depressed person if that makes any sense to you. My core is so full of love that the world that we live in depresses me but I am optimistic that there is good in everyone and that our Creator is good therefore the end result of this tragedy will be a happy ending.
Thank you for reading and sharing.
Love All,
Melanie Jane Shanks

Thanks! I have been busy with work. I have wrote a little but I haven't put anything new on here for a while. I have been reading a little but mostly books. Read "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" and am almost done with "Subliminal, How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior." Both fabulous reads. Hope things are well with you.

Hi. You created a contest back in 2008, for funny poems. I don't know whether I forgot or whether today is the first time I saw it, but my poem won and if I didn't say thank you back then, thanks.
