My passion is writing. My passion is creating characters, putting them in fantastical situations, and seeing how they get out of trouble, or get deeper into it, and then try to move forward. And sometimes they succeed. And sometimes they fail.
My passion is creating. Just like a dancer, a illustrator, a carpenter, etc.
Yeah, I don’t CREATE full time. Nor do I make my day job out of it…for now. But I have the drive, THE PASSION, and it is something I carry with me 24/7. It’s there. It’s part of my soul, part of my core being.
A passion, an interest, also keeps me moving forward. Keeps me moving forward on those rough days. It gives me something to look forward to. That, at some point, I will sit down and scribble some notes on some new fantastic voyage for a character, create a story line, an idea to start making the creative juices flow. The magic is made when I can sit down at my writing mechanism of choice (and availability) and start that creation process.
I don’t believe in writers block. If there seems to be a day of consternation, I smash through it and just write up some gibberish, or work on something new, setting the main piece or project aside.
Have to keep on keeping on. Because it’s like an arm, or a leg, or a head. It’s part of me!
This passion. This creativity. This yearning to create. IT’S PART OF ME.
So I say to you, CREATE ON. Follow your passion in life, whatever it is.
