Everything's coming up roses...so many great creative projects are blooming, I barely know where to begin...
I've just posted some new blogs for Edible San Juan Mountains on some great local events. This weekend, there's big fun to be had in Durango at the First Annual Four Corners Pride Festival.
On Saturday, local foodies can treat themselves to a gourmet dinner at Fox Fire Farms. The Dinner at the Farm event promises to be fun, with a five-course meal prepared from farm-fresh ingredients, and Fox Fire Farms free-range meat and poultry. Each course will be paired with wine selections from Fox Fire's own vineyard, and Guy Drew Vineyards near Cortez.
What else is cooking in my creative kitchen? Lots of marvelous ideas for new stories are blooming this summer- I can barely write fast enough to keep up with my characters. I'll be sure to share my latest efforts here at Addictive Fiction when they're ready!
In other news, I will be interviewing Cynthia Staples for my Creativity Portal exclusive series, "Creating a Fun, Fabulous Career in the Arts." She is a phenomenal photographer and writer, and I'm honored to have had the chance to work with her. She wanted to share some of her photos with readers, so I'm posting one here. More of her photos can be found on her blog, Words and Images by Cynthia. I've also posted a few pics on my blog, Stealing Plums, to get readers excited about our upcoming interview.
My biggest news? I've made the leap from day-job to dream job! I am now officially job-free, and am currently offering new clients my services as a freelance writer, artist, blogger, editor, proof-reader, and creativity consultant. This is something I've dreamed of doing for years, and was always afraid to do. Now that it's done, I can't figure out why I didn't do this years ago...fear kept me from moving forward.
And so, today, I say to you, be fearless. Move boldly in the direction of your heart's deepest desire, its most secret ache. Let your creative dreams outside to play!
