Dream Girl


dreamgirl, originally uploaded by susanwrites.

I took a break from all the house stuff today and headed to the studio for a little art time. I had started this collage months ago but finally got the chance to finish it. I have just the spot for her in my office. Well, as soon as all the furniture from all the other rooms gets moved out of there and I can actually get INTO my office again.



(edited to upload a new picture closer to the true colors)

Susan, this is so incredibly lovely. I don't ever want to hear you say, in any shape or form, that you're not an artist. :)

Oh Becky, thank you. I sorta had that pounded into me on my recent retreat too. So I guess I am claiming, writer, speaker, teacher, poet and artist. Whew!

Thank you. It's not "quite" as dark as the picture might make it appear but I had to turn the flash off to get a good pic.

What a lovely collage! I suspect it will provide inspiration in your office. Good luck with the redecorating.

Stunning, Susan! Very evocative. Makes me wish I hadn't closed my own studio a few years ago and was still making art. You're going to love looking at this in your office!

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
