Alright, let's address the elephant in the room.
Why is your username phattimaddi? Seems rather self-proclaimed.
Well, let me paint you a picture.
Young, chubby kid growing up in a small town has crush on new guy that just moved in. He's cute and funny and they become the best of friends. As a joke, he calls her 'Fatty Maddi'. She, not wanting to lose his friendship, laughs at the nickname and embraces it throughout middle school, no matter how much it bothers her. Fast forward to her freshman year of high school. She's lost weight over the summer and has come back feeling absolutely fabulous. The nickname shouldn't still stick, right? But it does. Crestfallen, she struggles with self-esteem until one day, she sees a poster in her English teacher's class. It defines the word Phat as something that is excellent.
That day, she realized two things. One: that words are only as powerful as the power you give them. And two: she truly was Phatti Maddi.
So there you have it. Any questions?
~ I'm a born again writer/reader who dreams of publishing novels one day.
~ I'm an insurance agent by day and closet author by night.
~ I'm twenty-three and happily in a relationship with a very supportive frisbee golfer
~ I really try to update my books as frequently as possible, but I have a million and one ideas and work on at least three projects at one time. And I'm a perfectionist. So, if you like my stories, updates may be a little slow, but they'll be edited to perfection.
