It is a place where I can talk endlessly and people can choose to opt out when they are ready to, but not while I am still talking. I write because I get to tell stories. Here I create what is real, what isn't real, what is going to happen and when it is going to happen. The story and the character’s destiny are mine. I love describing characters and settings. Here I get to unravel the tale. I get to take risks.
Don’t be afraid to take risks, they are there for the taking. Have confidence in your work. Write regularly. Don’t give up. I find that the more I write the more I improve. Practice makes perfect.
Writing is where I am my own boss. I get to show up in whatever I want to and when I want to. We writers have quirks. That is what sets us apart from everyone else. So, whether you are the writer who shows up in their pajamas, a crazy hat or you like to write in odd places. Just show up! Push everything else out of the way! Start talking!
