This statement that someone I know said once has been on my mind for a long time and the truth is that it has been on my mind because my answer to this question is “SPEAK FOR YOURSELF”. As long as I can remember I always wanted to be a detective. I got up every Saturday to watch Scooby-Doo, read all the Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books. I also watched Charlies Angels, Remington Steele, and any other private eye shows that I came across. Now you may ask yourself “what does this have to do with creativity?” Well “my” answer is everything. I did not want to be saved, I wanted to have experiences, I wanted to discover things for myself. Besides if I was going to be of royal lineage I would definitely be the Queen!
To put it in creative terms that is why I became a writer. As a writer I can be: a detective, an artist, a model, a reporter, a good girl, a bad girl, a fortune teller, a kept woman, a woman of independent means, a queen, a warrior. I can be an angel/super -sleuth/spy or anything I damn well please. There is a great sense of freedom in that. The one thing I never imagined being is a princess! Have a fabulous week, go out with love, peace and purpose in your adventures!
