Taking Risks…

“Write what you know” is all very well but it certainly does restrict most of us within narrow confines. You must also be able to write what you don’t know, but can imagine. This is what your imagination is for. Let it fly!

Using the first person, describe an event or action you are fairly sure you will never experience first hand. Be very specific – the more details you incorporate the more likely it is that your reader will believe you. Include your feelings and reactions.



I am Myself I am a Wife Blessed with love I am a Mother Endowed with divinity Through the power of creation I am a Daughter Brought into this world With unending hope And the promise of the future I am a Sister Made fierce and strong While forged with kindness Protector and protected Spiraling together forever I am a Nurse Holding out the hands of healing And offering the sick comfort And the dying love Knowing that through this All things are healed and made whole I am a Writer Creating myself and world Sharing the inner depths of humanity Bringing together the divine And the humble mortal I tell the story of the Goddess And am remembered forever
