I have never felt so low and so bad as I do right now. I was writing a prompt, and I wrote about a vision I could picture in my mind. I stated in the first sentence that this was fabricated, but as Al has stated, I should have put it in bold letters.
I have earned my friendships on here and now I have probably lost so many friends because of this post. I sincerely was writing about the beautiful vision I was imagining in my mind when Al goes to heaven.
I never meant to hurt anyone and I understand if you leave my blog. I did delete it but I imagine it is too late now.
I was made aware about an hour ago, that my published photo and my poem are a scam. I replied back to the email.
I understand that I am only honored with a certificate for my poem, and my photo was published. I also understand that if the company wanted to publish my poem, it could have required a certain dollar amount.
At this time in my life, I was grabbing on to some happiness for me. Caring for my brother is hard work, maybe more emotionally than physically, but sill, it is a 24/7 job, which I am doing alone.
I shared with all of you because I got so much joy out of something good, that I didn’t care if I had to purchase the book or not. I won’t be purchasing the book. I am so content, with just knowing they were just giving me an honorable mention with the poem.
My photo is in a book out here in the world, and I did not have to purchase to get it there. Well, anyways, I don’t ever want anyone to think that I would ever try to pull something off that was not true. I was just so darn excited, and had to share……………
Sorry for any misunderstandings on my part.
Hugs to all of my friends. I don’t know what I would do without you!!!!
