Dylan Jourey ran his hands through his dark brown hair in frustration. He couldn’t believe that his daughter had done that. He couldn’t believe that she had burst into Skye Parker’s shelter, her place of business, and just made that accusation. He hadn’t even realized that the town they had moved to was one that actually had a Parker in residence. He figured that was what he got for not looking into the proprietors of businesses.
But when he had heard about this town, he had to bring his daughter. He was tired of always having to hide who and what they were, everywhere that they had moved. It wasn’t that he wasn’t proud that he was a werewolf and that he was raising a “werewolf pup”, especially as a single father, but most of the world didn’t even realize that they were actually real, that they actually existed. That was the problem, the singular problem. If they really knew, they would be hunted down and eliminated. That’s why he moved to Needmore, Colorado.
Yuck! That’s what I wrote. This is why I have a love-hate relationship with NaNoWriMo. I write terribly when I’m forced to write. When I let the words just flow, I can get some amazing shit done.
Right now, it’s not happening. Right now, I’m just trying to get caught back up!
Even my SEO plugin is telling me my writing is bad :O
Oh well, time to just keep going! See you on the flip side!
The R-word is the word ‘retard(ed)’. Why does it hurt? The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory. The R-word is hate speech. See why supporters think the R-Word is hurtful when used in jokes or as part of everyday speech.
I’m not looking for just a Band-Aid fix. I’m joining the call for an all-out ban on the word. No child is retarded. NOTHING and NO ONE should be called that.
The hurt and pain that children (and adults) feel isn’t just something that can be wished away. Nothing takes away that pain. NO ONE deserves to feel like that.
Find another word for it. Personally, I use moronic. It describes those who act stupid better. When I think *something* is stupid, I say stupid or screwy. I NEVER call a person “retarded”. I don’t even like mentally handicapped. Every person has a gift, and those are developmentally challenged have the gift of showing us that we’re stronger than we are. They show us what true love really is.
So, Janey, I’m blogging this for my complete and total admiration of you, and your amazing son, Will. You two make me smile DAILY with how strong BOTH of you are!
