Creating: Art, Books & A New Life

My life is all about creating. I embrace change. I embrace growth. I thrive on creativity. I think, to be a talented writer you need these things. Some people fear change. I’ve known people like this and I’ve seen it destroy them, I’ve seen it make their hopes for talent fall short until they give up, refusing to learn or change. I learn something new every day. I thrive on continuing my education. Recently, I started attending free webinars every chance I get, and I’ve signed back up on Udemy to take free courses on almost anything (my first two have been a witchcraft class and a class on writing celebrity biographies).

ART: I may have opted out of ever entering ArtPrize, but that will not stop me from making art. In fact, I have some fun collage art/word art handmade zines up for sale on Etsy, and more to come. I am also still working on my own tarot deck. It will consist of only the major arcana, but it will be awesome. AND, I’ve decided to use collage art for all future Frankie the Firefly books.

BOOKS: My book writing may seem as though it’s on hiatus since it’s been a few months since I last published anything. I assure you, there are books in the works. I like to take my time and ensure I include everything that needs to be in the book to make it the best version possible. Plus, editing takes time. The next books you’ll see from me (and from my publishing company) are a self-help book titled The Jealousy Remedy, an all-new Frankie the Firefly, and the first occult book from Dogopus. However, before these books find their way to print I am finishing up my dissertation on positive thinking and how it can change your life (which will become part of a future book).

LIFE: For me, life is combined fully with art, books, writing, learning, and love. I am slowly developing a small tribe with similar interests. I have been able to embrace my love of spirituality and the occult again without someone chastising me for my beliefs and interests. I am able to create freely, and the man in my life supports me. This is a glorious feeling- having mutual love, respect, and support for one another. It’s something I didn’t even know could exist in a relationship. It’s a beautiful thing. I’ve been able to move on from bad relationships and negativity. I have found my positive side again and fully embraced it.

Most importantly, I have decided to expand my writing career in many ways and am learning new writing techniques and investing more time in researching gigs that fit my desires. It’s a great feeling doing what you love for a living. It’s an even greater feeling knowing you’re putting your all into putting out the best work possible.
