WRITING (AREN'T YOU WRITING A NOVEL?) :: Yes! I began writing a novel in 2005. It’s the hardest art project that I have ever attempted, but I love working on it and want the time to work on it ---badly! Over the past ten years, I have done a great deal of technical writing (i.e. grant writing, syllabi, press releases, administrative emails, etc.), but I have not done much creative writing. I’m learning that I write creatively like I collage. I have a huge stack of unorganized paragraphs that need to be sequenced. I like days when I can write for a few hours and paint or collage the rest of the day. It helps me to be able to bounce between projects. Recently, the novel is the project that I want to work on the most. I’m praying to be able to finish it soon!
