Whenever anyone asks me what project I am working on now, my passion cuts through the air like a swashbuckler’s sword. I usually need to pull myself away from conversation. I worry about being annoying, as I was raised to not be a bother to others, first and foremost.
When I saw the announcement of April’s A to Z challenge I leaped to it. I said, “It is the perfect excuse to get it out there and just possibly attract others who love women and literature as much as I do!” This is true whether it is fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays – for me it is the passion rather than anything else that attracts me.
I am also doing a concurrent visual arts project. Whenever I show my pages to people they have different suggestions. “You can make it into a book!” people usually say. Yes, I can. Or I can make it into visual art display, which is my plan.
Sometimes I think I can do both. Or I will do both.
The sword may have a wider slice than I originally imagined.
I hope you will follow along with this adventure both in the month of April and beyond.
