I am, at heart, a maker. A creator. An artist. If I'm not taking something from my brain and making it tangible in one way or another, then I feel like I'm wasting away, wasting time and life.
Knitting. Writing. Cooking. Sewing. Photography. Gardening.
Activities that let me shape the world, even if it's only my own microcosm. How I thrive. I've come to realize that it's something of a compulsion because every time I consider giving up writing, I realize how much it would hurt.
I am a maker of many kinds. I always will be.
