Creation grants me the space to capture the words that had eluded me at the time they were dying to creep out from hiding.
I left home at 19, and came back aged 27 with my own daughter. "You should be writing," Dad said. It was the dream that still eluded me.
What gets you all fired up? Some say you should write what you know. I say you should write what you're passionate about.
As I meet the New Year and all the cultural messaging around self-discipline, I'm resolute in my own way: to preserve January as a sanctuary for reflection.
