I am a lot of things. Creative, eccentric, eclectic, brutally honest...the list could go on. To my family and friends, I am a stubborn, hard-shelled truffle with a creamy center. If you didn't guess by the end of that last sentence, I sell chocolate. They come to me for help with their computers, relationships, and homework. In the eyes of strangers, I could be anything from the sweetest individual who ever walked the Earth to evil incarnate.
Over the last year, I taught myself to paint on canvas. The artistic side of me has always been present, but hasn't always been expressed. For most of my life, I thought that painting on canvas would be an impossibility. One October afternoon, something indescribable clicked in my chaotic mind and I went to the art store. Since then I've managed to frame and hang two paintings on walls outside of my own home. Sure, they were for my sisters, but it was an accomplishment I toiled to achieve!
My writing has slowed in the last day or so because I started reading Inheritance, which is a great book, so far! It has also inspired me to work more on developing my characters and making them more distinct from one another.
My most favorite people in the world are those who have an open mind, the ability to think outside the box, and at least one eccentric trait. The pigment content of your skin, your date of manufacture, and whatever happens to be lurking underneath your clothing doesn't factor into that determination. If everyone around you calls you weird or odd or crazy, you may be my next best friend! Sociopaths and extreme narcissists need not apply. ;)
