An Amazing Discovery I made about myself as a Person and as a Writer

Hello everyone,

Today I’d like to talk to you about a huge discovery I made about my creativity and my work as an author.

 

As you well know, by reading my character interviews and such, I love Christian fiction and mysteries. However, there’s one more genre I find fun and exciting to write and this genre is fantasy. I don’t mean the dark fantasy some authors write. No, my fantasy is clean, has a Christian fiction flair, and a hint of mystery. The magic I use is good magic, to ward off the evils of my world. I have created magical creatures that rescue people and animals in trouble, and two girls earn their wings after assisting with the rescue mission and discovering the truth about their supposed friend.

 

Will I still write my Christian mysteries and thrillers? Certainly, but I want to be known as a multi-faceted author, therefore I may experiment with other genres, but make my novels clean and easy for my readers to digest. If it turns my stomach, I won’t read it, nor will I write it and subject you to such literature, though there are those of you who like this type of writing style.

 

I encourage you to follow me down my creative journey as I make discoveries about myself as a Christian, a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, let’s just say an all-around human being, and last, but certainly not least, as a writer. Thank you for reading and sharing my amazing discovery.

 

Before I leave you to ponder my revelation, I have one final question for you, my dear reader. What amazing discoveries have you made as a creative person? Please share your aha moments in the comments below. God bless you and happy writing.

The sound of silence: A distraction, or the opening for creative inspiration?

I wasreading some writing prompts at random, and there was one in particular that got me to thinking. The question I asked myself, was whether the sound of total silence, either from my being totally silent, or from the silence of a room, could serve as a distraction or if it could open me up and lead to creative inspiration.

First of all, I have come to this conclusion: some days, the complete sound of silence can lead to inspiration after reading a good book, or watching a movie or documentary. However, when I am working on some professional writing, the sound of silence could serve as a distraction, therefore I play music, or I either like to hear the sound of a clock or my Braille display ticking in the background to keep me going. By the same token, too much noise, or a TV show that is easy to get hooked into can be a serious distraction for me when I am working as well.

What do you think, is the total sound of silence a distraction, or can it give you the opportunity to become inspired to write something creative? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
