People always say in writing, write what you know, write what you know. First, I am not sure what I know . There are a lot things bouncing around up there that I’m not even privy to until my hands hit the keyboard or the ink sticks to the paper.
I know a few things . I know I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer but neither am I the dullest. I don’t hail from a major college like Harvard, Yale, or MIT, but I do know how to enquire, to investigate , to search and use the tools at my disposal. I have not traveled the world over experiencing and knowing wonderous places and cultures but I do know I can daydream like nobody’s business and that gets me there just fine.
I do know one thing very well; at least I think I like to think I know. And that’s people. One such people is my wife. (and yes that was on purpose)
For anyone who follows me on here you know that I mentioned that my wife underwent a major surgery back in Mid-July. Since I have known her my wife has been a very strong woman; in willpower and spirit anyways, unfortunately her body just doesn’t always want to agree with her at times it seems.
I will not wax on to much on how this is her fourth ambdominal surgery in the last twenty years, and that each surgery is very invasive and painful for her, with each having a long recovery time. She is without a doubt one of the strongest women I know. She could be Wonder Woman’s twin sister with blonde hair as far as I’m concerned (especially in the chest area) but I digress.
I just wanted to relay that sprinkled throughout our life and time together, I found how truly strong and courageous she is. Each heroic moment from her has inspired me to this day in my l writing for what I want any strong person I write about to be like and exemplify.
This type of character is a no-brainer for me. This character lives with me everyday and I am happy she has chosen this seat next to me on this magical train called life to take us to wherever we wish to go.
She is but one character in my life that I look to for inspiration but she is by far the most important. She anchors it all down.
And this one below…I loves me some Wonder Woman what I can say…
