Hi. My name is Terri, an obsessed bookworm in Arizona. I keep lots of journals, and I have since age 11. If I’m not reading, then I’m writing. It helps keep me sane. Sane-’ish. After years of posting some of my journal excerpts and creative writing to various pages of The Quote Garden, I’ve had many requests to make my work available all in one place so I decided that this blog will be that place. It will take some time to select and transfer from 35 years of records, but I will keep posting a few snippets at a time so check back often. Thank you all for your interest. Enjoy!

❝Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly. Only if you do that can you hope to make the reader feel a particle of what you, the writer, have known and feel compelled to share.❞  —Anne Rice  💖
