In a creative mood but unwilling to start the paintings for my sister's Christmas present, I went to the craft store. There, I varied between wanting to design T-Shirts, make jewelry and decorate cakes.
When I got back home, I hung out with my friend Ramona and, bored, I decided to do her makeup. I wanted to be a makeup artist and do this: (Makeup inspired by the Cheshire Cat)
And this: (Strawberry and leaves)
This is everything I wanted to be - today.
Sometimes, I want to be everything.
And you know what? That's what I love about storytelling and writing, it can take me places and live lives I never could have on my own. I can be anything my imagination conjures. If it doesn't work out, I can set that life aside for a rainy day and move on to the next.
No strings. No years of schooling. Nothing to hold me back except the limitations I set upon myself.
Now that, my friends, is freedom.
What's one thing you love about writing? Your passion? Ever have any wild dreams besides being a writer/whatever you are now?
