The Critique Castle

A place to enter, if you dare, and leave all your writing behind. We don't want the whole book. Just a chapter, synopsis or a writing example. Let's help each other become better writers.

Have You "Freed Your Inner Book" Yet?
What You Need to Know About Me:
Ravá Shelyn carries a bag of diametrically opposed items of possibilities and limitations; inferiorities and superiorities; loves and fears; assimilations and segregations. At times blindly digs in to find which one to submit to. She tells the story of love and pain – of her African American experience. This woman of the west is a Colorado native who grew up in the Northern Park Hill area of Denver. At a very early age, she began telling the stories of her classmates and childhood friends (none of which are included in her present day works). Yet, one thing was and still is clear – her mission, predestined at conception to tell stories and create art through written words.

"I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition."
