7 Veronica Giguere

07 Jul

What inspires me? What drives me to create and break out of that mundane little box of Everyday?

At the core of it, I think it’s a matter of survival. The opposite of creation is death; without something new and vibrant, we artists would wither away. We would stagnate.

I’m pretty certain that a big part of who we are would die.

As a writer, I create to breathe life and give voice to the ideas and characters that live in my mind. I see writing as one way to create a community and bring people around a common theme. Writing allows me to play, to grow, to build upon a single idea through words and images. Writing – the creation of the art that is the written word – allows me to function within the mundane. To put it simply, writing allows me to have a better quality of life.

So I guess one might say that I write to live. I create to live.

    Writing becomes a need, an obsession and a part of life.
    To not be creative is not to live.

    Nice post.

    Words have been a door into ourselves since we learned to use sounds to pass ideas to others. I am glad you use that door to let your characters live.
