Sodaro's Stories

The future indeed looks bright

Filed under: Writer's thoughts — michelle sodaro @ 3:09 pm

The past few days I have been bombarded with images from the past. It has been an amazing journey that has brought me to this also some of those point in my life. I am so blessed to have so many positive, supportive people in my life. There are, of course, also those people that were not truly supportive, were and are jealous, those that have attempted to control me or shape me into what they thought I should be. But I am just me…writer/teacher/student. I am not the one to be controlled or tamed or shaped. I am my own “Captain my Captain.”
I am in the profession where I can excel, I am making progress on my Doctorate, I have tangible goals for getting my novels finished and published so that the whole world can meet the characters that I already know and love. I talk about my characters as if I could invite them over for lunch…they are that real to me and soon they will be that real to everyone.
The past was full of darkness and confusion. I lost my footing many times. But now, the future looks bright and shiny!



  1. Oh, yes! A writer will out no matter who tries to suppress.

    The characters being alive, I totally understand. Mine tag along everywhere with me. The best part is they make every day exciting because I’m never sure if they will stay on the path I have roughly outlined for them, or if they will strike out on their won path. It matters not, just so long as they take me with them 🙂

    • They have been so with me, that there have been times, I pour two glasses of juice…luckily I did this with only fictional witnesses. And usually the paths they pick for themselves are so much better than anything I would have thought of!!
