What's Your Passion?



What are you passionate about?  And what are you doing about it?  That is my question for "What is Beautiful?" this week.

I have always had a passion for writing.  I can remember writing stories from a very young age.  My sister and I would write plays.  I always scored best on my writing tests in school.  (Permit me some boasting, please.) I had an English teacher in High School who gave me an A on a paper I wrote about teachers.  I was not kind with my words.  Indulge me here.  I had some rotten teachers in high school.  One of which actually reference to yours truly, "Once a loser, always a loser." Oh yes he did.  So you can see why I had harsh words for teachers.  My English teacher could have given me a C or worse.  But he had integrity.  I got the A I deserved.  However, he left a message for me that said, "Teachers like that should not be teaching."  Amen!  But I have derailed...

My passion is writing.  I love the power of the written word.  I love the power it gives me!  If I want to write a story about aliens attacking earth, I can.  If I want to write about magical places and people, I can.  It's the beauty of writing.  You are the creator.  What am I doing about it?  It's here and on my main blog.  I love writing and posting each and every day.  I don't know if I will ever get that book published, but for now I will be happy to hit publish post!

Now tell me what is your passion, and what are you doing about it?

You had a teacher tell you that? WOW! I had a jr. college teacher accuse me of cheating on the simplest assignment. I was like...really?! After that I never took any more of her classes and still can't stand her till this day.

I think my passion is crafts and creating, writing, and photography even though I do not have a fancy camera.
