Hello one and all. My name is LaShounda but I go by Shonni for short. I have been writing both poetry and stories for a little while now. I have finally came out of my shell to let others read it and give me feedback on my writings and how I can make it better. In my portfolio you will find writings dealing with past and present things going on with me. Feel free to look around. (Updated 1/27/10) At first I was not using writing.com to the best of my ability, once again allowing fear to overcome. That is no more.
