Then, around grade two, a children’s author came to our school and spoke to us about writing children’s books. This woman (how I wish I remember her name) completely captivated me. Her process of writing of children’s books planted a seed of inspiration. While I have not written a children’s book (yet), thinking back on my own journey of writing and now blogging is rather interesting [to me].
Writing for me is an extension of my art practice, and if you have studied fine arts, you know that writing is a big part of the art world. Writing my blog allows me to combine a small part of my academic self alongside my artistic and motherhood related interests. Blogging, as I have discovered, is a wonderful way to keep creative, despite the busyness of caring for a little one. On that note, I must now retire to bed, as sleep is essential to keeping up with a busy toddler!
