In Full Bloom
If you know anything about me, you know how much I love every single aspect of gardening. With the exception of a few insects here and there, however, that is par for the course. It's an acquired taste. Gardening that is. With it comes a natural endorphin releasing, stress relieving, and therapeutic hobby that will either leave you vowing to never attempt to plant again or will ignite a passion within you that will become both addictive and unstoppable. On a scale of things that are healthy addictions, this is without question, one of them.
Do you like playing in the dirt? Or are you afraid to get your hands dirty? Well, grab a pair of cute garden gloves or get down and dirty with it and feel the earth between your fingers. The choice is all yours my friends.
What a great day it was to spend a bit of time stepping into the mind of Bryan Stubbles. We met in the bizarre, fun, and often times insane world of Twitter. Since then, I have been amazed, inspired, and encouraged by his gift of creativity and his sincere support within the writing community. An accomplished playwright, and an amazingly talented writer with an infectious personality to match. It's safe to say, I am a fan. Take a peek at what he has to say and I'm sure you will be too!
◆ How are you doing on this amazing day?
Pretty good. Thanks for asking.
◆ Writers are known for having thoughts at any given time. When do you have your best ideas?
When I’m not too burdened with real-life responsibilities.
◆ If you had to give a title to the blueprint of your life, what would it be called?
The Case of the Missing Blueprint
◆ Do you remember the first time you brought ink to paper?
Kind of. I remember drawing a comic strip about a mouse traveling down a river when I was like 6. I may have written stuff earlier, but this is what I remember.
◆ Other than writing, tell us what else you love that gets your heart pumping.
A wee bit of everything. History, music, theatre, film, languages, cooking, exploring, volunteering...pretty much anything involving creativity and/or helping others. An office drone job would stop my heart from pumping and that would be sad.
◆ The writing community is a huge network of authors, creators and so much more, do you ever feel pressured to perform based on what others are doing?
No. I love seeing other people’s success, too. We are in the same boat.
◆ Have you ever googled yourself?
Yes. And I think I’ve googled you, too (gasp!).
