I joke that my Muse tricked me into writing and, in a sense, it's true. Through my school years, I did all I could to avoid writing. I opted instead for subjects like math; that way, I minimized the dangers of not only being wrong but of being judged for having been wrong.
My Muse had other plans, as I write in my Acts of Surrender memoir. Starting in high school when I was pushed into doing publicity for two musicals, I was subtly transformed into the writer I never thought I wanted to be. Within a decade, I was freelancing full-time as a writer/editor.
It would take another decade before I moved from a teller of others’ stories as a magazine and corporate writer to a teller of my own — as author of my first novel: the award-winning first book in my Q’ntana Trilogy, The MoonQuest.
What I've discovered over the years is that the Call To Write is one I can’t ignore, which is why I titled my second book The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. I can’t not write any more than I can’t not breathe.
As painful as I found the decades of creative drought that preceded The MoonQuest, it’s those years that fueled all the passion that has followed: teaching, speaking and, of course, writing.
Today, when I’m not working on my own creative projects, I’m guiding others on theirs. I do it with my books and recordings. I do it in my workshops, webinars and seminars. And I do it one-on-one as a creativity catalyst, a term I invented to take coaching and mentoring to dynamic, more empowered levels.
In short, my passion is to inspire you to unlock, fire up and unleash yours. Drop me a line and let’s answer your call to write today!
