Penumbra - a space of partial illumination (as in an eclipse) between the perfect shadow on all sides and the full light beyond.
These are the worlds where opposites collide,
light and shadow,
pain and hope,
love and hate,
female and male,
two sides of the same coin,
with nothing in between.

Your choice: Bitter or BETTER

Hello friends,
Mama Magie here. A post-stroke mom who writes as part of my recovery. These are my more serious scribbles when I am not writing fantasy with my minionettes. This stories here are ALL for a more mature audience, a walk between shadow and light. There will be triggers for those of us who are survivors. Some of the beginnings, middles, and endings are not what I would wish on anyone or to be done by anyone. But sadly, these are the truths of many.
Reality turned to fiction as a coping mechanism. Some are my own, some belong to others. Some will overcome, others will succumb. It is the way of the world, and for some, the happiest outcome is simply an ending.
I do not advocate suicide or self harm, denial or self-medication. I encourage all to seek help, even if it lies with a stranger through pixels and photons. We are all sisters and brothers. We all have choices in a world that teaches we are objects. Weep, cope, reach out. You are not alone. You do not deserve to suffer. For support, please visit @SayNoToAbuse

Become BETTER, not Bitter.

Quote: I don't fear monsters or demons, vampires or werewolves. I fear what real people do to real people.
Dear Lovelies,
Due to recent data thefts made by unauthorized sites against the writers of Wattpad and plagiarism threats, ONLY my roughest drafts are here since Private Chapters are no longer available to writers. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I work very hard to overcome my disability to produce good story content for my lovely readers.
For more info, visit my twitter, my blog or find me on Amazon under M.M. Ward. Thank you for understanding. Have a blessed day, Mama Magie
