This blog chain topic was brought to you by the lovely Michelle who asked,
"Do you choose WHAT you do because of WHO you are? Or is who you are determined by what you do?"
Check out the stupendous Shaun who answered before me and the tantalizing Rebecca who will answer tomorrow.
I can go both ways with this question. The desire to create is as powerful to me as my desire to eat, sleep, and breathe. If I wasn't writing, sewing, or quilting - well - I'd probably find myself in a nice padded room.
I'm sure most of you can relate. I often joke about the voices that whisper stories inside my head. To a non-writer, this is a sure sign that I need to up my medication. But for those of you who have chosen to follow the most heart breaking, rewarding, frustrating, and euphoric paths there is, you know that you didn't really choose to take it at all. You know that where your muse travels you must follow. And if you're like me, you ran down that dark scary path, stumbled a few times, and continue on - refusing to look back.
I can say that following my creative path has allowed me to do some fun things with my appearance that I wouldn't have been able to do were I still serving my time in a cubicle.
