What drives you to write, what inspires to take something ordinary and write about it in a way that it becomes extrordinary?
I write because I love to share with others my experiences and my knowledge and because it makes me feel fulfilled. An ordinary situation can be made to come alive by using metaphors, alliteration, writing style, and using the senses. I know that using ordinary words like pretty, beautiful do not fulfill a descriptive need. A person needs to totally describe a person or a situation so that the reader can feel it and see it. I am a member of Toastmasters and learned to make stories come alive.
