“For some of us, the highest form of play, as well as work, is creativity. The best gift is a creative idea to play with.”
…from God, Help Me Create by Claire W. Chapter 1 intro, Considering Creativity
I had originally set out to write another blog, my first on writing. But I wanted more. Maybe it was what was becoming the mundane of writing articles and using keywords. Not rocket science but when you’re a writer you strive for relevancy if not proper sentence structure.
Somewhere in my excitement of finding work as a freelance writer, I immediately lost the part of me that wanted to be a published writer, someone who wanted to write fiction, write for kids, and write creatively. And yes, I have so many creative ideas to play with.
Yes what I do now is fulfilling and creative, but in the midst of embracing a new found career that would keep me home with my children and save me from a commute to the office in the future, I kept telling myself that I had more work to do. If I could accomplish so much in so little time in my journey to becoming a writer, why would I not apply myself to what my heart cries out to do? Why?
If I eek out time in my life to make a living, can I not eek out a bit of time each day to make a dream…come true?
