I love words. I love stories, I love myths, I love silly sayings and puns so dumb you laugh yourself stupid. I love arranging words on a page like paint on a canvas, until the story I in my head gets the perfect perspective, the right balance of silliness and truth. I’ve always written, and have been working on illustrating my own book of poetry for the past few months, but it wasn’t until a few days ago that I realized that writing and creating my own stories was “The Dream.” And it’s actually because of this course I’m taking, @artistsinbusiness asked the question “What is my favorite thing I have to offer?” Don’t get me wrong, I love painting but creating art is like breathing to me, it is not something I dream of, it is something I do to stay alive. I dream of writing stories, of creating epic adventures and filling the world up with more magic than Harry Potter. This was a huge revelation to me because I never really took myself seriously as a writer, but when I looked at this question and I looked at how many poems I had written, how many stories, short and long, all the unsent letters and silly little sayings that crowed up my notebooks, I had to really had to reconsider that viewpoint. SO I have now started a new Instagram page for my WORDS and whatnot @nowritewords 😁 It’s been three days now and quite frankly I’m really surprised and pleased with the response. So If you’d like to see some more of my writing, check out my new page.
