So, I sent my collection of short stories to an editor back in Ohio. She said she prefers writers who have a strong web presence... Web presence?? who have a website or a blog... Blog?
Thank god for the younger generation! My daughter, sister, and nephew are cyber-literate, supportive, informative, and actually took my questions seriously. Then again, you can't really see eye rolling on e-mail or over the phone.
I did some research on how to set up a blog. It was recommended that I choose a topic to focus on. One topic??? Out of all the possibilities that exist? The biggest, most all-encompassing topic I could come up with was creativity. My belief is that every single one of us, yes--even you, are made up of creative "stuff" that's just waiting to be expressed.
It took me until I was in my 40ies to stumble into this awareness, but I believe it to the very roots of my soul. My intention is to share my personal journey into creative expression as it shows up in writing, composing, acting, singing, and doing my life's work of psychotherapy. I'll be talking about the creative process in its many forms, and hope that you'll share your experiences as well. We're all in this world together and regardless of our culture or background, the one thing that crosses any appearance of separation is creative expression.
Please join me each week for an update. And, I look forward to hearing from you. Until then, best regards. Jo
