I Create Because…

As we count down the days to the launch of The Lost Knight Volume I, the first book in my six-part series, I am reminded why I like the art of creating. I’m sure every kind of artist whether they are photographers, painters, actors, singers, dancers or jewelry or clothing designers all have their favorite things they love about doing practicing their craft.

I must admit that writing is a lonely sport that attracts misfits and weirdos. You sit by yourself in a room with your characters. Then you release them into the world to be judged. It’s scary. I understand why so many authors were alcoholics and drug addicts.

On the other hand though, creating literary worlds and adventures is a pleasure like none other. Once my characters start speaking to me, I no longer feel so lonesome. While I’m in the act of creating, I am filled with a power that makes me feel like I can do anything. From my fingertips to the keys and out to you, a million ideas can be spawned and when they are consumed, the connection between the artist and consumer is one of pure magic.

Are you a creative person? What are you inspired by? How do you feel when you are in the throes of your artistry? Share in the comments below. Let’s get to know one another!
