I’ve been many things in my life; a writer remained at the front of how I always chose to describe myself, but when the Internet beckoned me, my answer was to start a magazine that would inspire artists and contain content I love. That magazine has shaped itself into a resource for all creative entrepreneurs, and I have stepped back as the jack-of-all-trades to focus my attention to what I most love. I most love the feeling when I’ve built something or someone else up.
I began by writing my dreams into characters who could accomplish all things imagined within the constructs of my short stories. Those characters melded with myself as I learned through experience, and the genre of creative nonfiction hosted the majority of my writing. Fearing that making a living and writing were mutually exclusive, I majored in psychology and minored in creative writing. While I don’t regret what I’ve learned about human nature and the things that make us mortals tick, I discovered that teaching and helping others fulfill their dreams is at the heart of my dream.
So, I’m starting a blog where I can address an audience of artists who can use my copy editing help in writing books, and my copy writing help in branding a small business. I will examine elements of photographs that tell a story (photojournalism), discuss how I use social media to brand and, on Fridays, I will sneak a post or two about the things I’m learning as I grow my babies into responsible members of the artistic community we call Earth.
