The Details of My Reality
by Katie L. Oslin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Fiction, Romance, Young Adult

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

My Purpose for writing this novel is to bring generations of women together.  My goal is to build a sense of camaraderie that resonates with women of all ages.  For the older generations this novel acts as a time capsule.  The novel is filled with so many emotions that the reader will laugh, cry, and feel as though the characters have come to life.  As for the younger generations, they are able to learn some of life’s lessons and know that other women have gone through similar circumstances that they may be experiencing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

He hugged me tightly for so long I wondered if he’d ever let me go.  Our cigarettes developed the longest ashes I ever saw.  As mine finally fell to the ground, I was reminded of how quickly I fell for Johnny and how our relationship had been burning for the last three years.  Eventually, we, too, like that ash, would fall.  We would end up a memory of something that burned so deeply into our souls and it too would eventually turn to ash.

Such thoughts swirled through my mind, as I drove without a destination.  Eventually, I found myself at the park where Johnny and I went that fateful night when he showed me the secret overlook and took my virginity and my innocence.  I decided to park the car, then I grabbed my emergency blanket, flashlight, and cigarettes and walked toward the precipice where it all began.

A tear fell down my cold wet cheek.  I sighed and gave him my heartbreaking answer.  “Honestly?”  I held back my tears as best I could.  “I want you to leave me alone, Johnny.  I want you to love me enough to let me go.  I want you to help me finally get over you by staying the hell away from me.  I want you to stay out of my life and let me be.  Please, Johnny, I’m begging you.
       
“I want to be happy.  I deserve that, and you of all people know it.  Since I can’t have it with you,” I said, crying a little harder, then I deserve to have it with someone else.  So, please, Johnny, if you love me like you say you do, you’ll let me go.”

    1. Thank you! I am very excited about this journey! I have truly been blessed. This photo was taken in Asheville, North Carolina by a friend of mine. I was there with other members of She Works His Way (a Biblical and Business driven group of women)- for a business, worship and Bible study conference and believe it or not, these balloons were part of the decor. And that beautiful background- well it was one of the precious buildings on the campus. When I see a photo op- I take it!!

    1. I am a dreamer. Always have been. I think of stories and draw inspiration from life around me. Being a writer to me is more of a purpose, or calling. I feel as if it chose me.
