more than just a writer

You are a scientist: examining life through telescope and microscope, observing both the great expanse and the most minuscule but essential detail.

You are a composer and musician: listening to the rhythm, pacing the beat, moving your characters dancing across the page.

You are a magician:  fashioning people and places from the lofty atmosphere of imagination.

You are a parent: protective of your characters and mindful of their actions.

You are an architect and builder: mortaring words and stacking paragraphs, mindful of delicate balance and pleasing form.

You are the Dreamweaver, the Educator, the Wanderer in unknown lands, the Obsessive always searching for the suitable word and flawless phrase.

You are the Faithful One who cherishes the written word in an era of images and sound.
