Writing was not something I wanted to do. Writing is something I had to do. Believe me, I tried to shake the feeling PLENTY OF TIMES. I just couldn’t get rid of the desire to wanna write and create. This led me on a path to become what I am now...a Multi-Creator.
There are times in your life when you just know what you were meant to do and what you were meant to become. Like the time I first heard D’angelo’s Voodo Album. I was hooked - the lyrics, the instrumentation, the way his voiced bounced around and hovered over tracks. I knew right then and there that I had to be a songwriter and that I had to be involved in the studio making and creating music. Or like the time I was in college and got my hands on James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time and it literally changed the game for me - the prose, the candor, the way in which he mirrored and reflected our society and humanity through the art of storytelling. It was masterful. I knew right then and there that I had to be a writer and that I had to be a storyteller.
And even though I’ve had a number of jobs throughout out my life (mostly in the Helping Profession) - everything from being a CaseWorker to being a Volunteer Manager at a Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Center - I’ve never stopped writing. And I’ve never stopped creating.
And so I’m grateful that I got the chance to create this platform - a publishing company that offers both exclusive music and writing. And because I believe it’s up to us to build community and support others, a portion of the proceeds get donated to local causes.
So, no...becoming a Multi-Creative Writer was never part of the plan for my life, but I guess it’s who I am now. And it’s a good thing, too. Because honestly...I really don’t know what I’d do without it.
Thanks for stopping by.
