If You Build it…

Filed under: Writer's thoughts — michelle sodaro @ 8:01 pm

What is amazing to me is this past month, I have been surrounded by creative energy. I have been introduced to people that have projects and books they want to work on with me. I have people that have been wanting to work on things for a while now…and I’m helping inspire them to do that…I’m full of creative energy for my own projects, have someone helping me with pictures and may have someone helping me with cover art for my “children”…can’t very well have them go out into the world without clothing, now can I.
It really feels a bit like Field of Dreams right now. I feel that I have built the ball park and that people are being drawn to it with their own creative hopes and dreams stowed safely in their pockets as they come to me and say, “what do you think about this???” and I say, “I think that would be a lot of fun to play with…let’s dive in!!!”
And the best thing about all of this creative energy is that is not in any way taking anything from my own projects. I am not having to neglect my stories (once again) in order to help others accomplish their projects. My stories are growing like the beautiful dandelions they are (this comes from my very favorite card my best friend once got me that said “Dandelions are my favorite flower because they refuse to give up”). This ball field that I have built is full of dandelions…and they are all doing quite well. My projects are revitalized by other’s ideas and the creative energy surrounding me is almost explosive…but in a nice, beautiful explosion, not a destructive and scary one. So here’s to my ball field of dandelions, both mine and others…and here’s to the creative energy surrounding my life right now.


  1. I bought you that card because you are a dandelion too! Looking forward to the first time I get to order one of your books off Amazon.
