Make your own free website on

Welcome. Glad you could be here. Ever notice how kids write and draw pictures all over the sidewalk? Well, this is my piece of the sidewalk. This is a website designed to provide writing resources and information for the aspiring poet and author. Make sure to bookmark this site and come back often because I'm constantly updating.

And now that I have finished boring you, I will let you see what my site has to offer. That's why you're here, is it not?

Warmest wishes,

Cheryl Bur
