This one had to come up sooner or later and I figure today's as good a day as any, though since you're reading my blog I assume you already know this about me.
I love to write. For some strange reason I can string words together on a page that make sense whereas what pops out of my mouth--not so much. I love creating my own worlds and creating inhabitants that live the lives I (literally) dream about. I love that all the make-believe things can seem so real there. Dragons? Check. Underwater airways? Check. Waking up in someone else's body? Check. Anything is possible when I write and the thrill that comes with it is better than any chemical high could ever produce. It's natural. It's Creative. It's heavenly.
I truly believe that when we create things we become partners with the greatest creator of all. I love being a pen in the hand of the Lord and feeling his spirit move through me. Even in writing fantasy? You might ask. You bet! Fantasy is nothing but a grown up fairy tale, a story with a purpose and a message in many cases.
Besides the gospel and my family it is my greatest love of all.
