Words and Art

Show day is tomorrow at The Art Shoppe in Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis at 12:30 pm. I’m excite not just for the weeks creating new art pieces but for the opportunity to have a simultaneous book signing opportunity. A return of regular books events has begun! I’ve impatiently waited for an event where readers can physically hold a book instead of having a Zoom meetup. I will be there with a pen in hand ready to mix two different kinds of medias.

Having this kind of show is an idea to borrow for other writers. Remember, you can team up with other creators for show or events even if you didn’t illustrate their book. I’ve been to and participated in artist alleys at conventions and depending on your genre you can present as an author or illustrator or both at the same table. Maybe you can come up with some kind of living installation that involves your writing as spoken word. Sometimes artists need storytellers.

The point I’m getting at is that being creative involves opening up your mind to new possibilities and interpretations. Just as there are different kinds of books or journals to publish, there are ways to get out your work. Maybe this is a new writing challenge. I’ve seen artist display poetry, words, and collages. Words can become art. Words make people think.

If you have a fear of getting your work out there, then this could be a way to get over your fear. Who knows you might turn into artist.

My posts are Monday through Friday. You can find a copy of my new Writer’s Journal at https://www.amazon.com/Writers-Journal-Writing-Prompts-Notes/dp/B0931QRL7C.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
