So True.

At twenty years of age I'm still looking for a dream
A war's already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can’t always see

‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
On my own I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me

When I was just a girl I thought I had it figured out
My life would turn out right, and I'd make it here somehow
But things don't always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt


And you’re free to be you

Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think I've got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I've got all You seek
And it’s easy to believe
Even though

Multi genre writing

So, I am trying to come up with some creative writing genres for my multi genre writing project. I need something more than the autobiography, short story, too-broad-for-anything type. I chose Edith Wharton for my topic, which allows plenty of creativity. I really want to get a hold of her letters. To research into her life that much will help me capture her voice. I don't know much about her somewhat-scandalous life, but I want to learn more. I have an extensive list of questions that are still unanswered. Hopefully some different ideas will come to me soon. I think I will create some type of shopping list or receipt of hers showing some interesting items she bought. Let me know if you can think of anything at all.
