Today’s topic for this meme hosted by There’s a Book is a tricky one. We’re supposed to share about our very special talent(s).
Some of us (me!) were brought up thinking it’s not “nice” to “toot your own horn.” But then I grew up and joined the world of networking for my creations and realized that, if I didn’t, who would?
I do recall overhearing conversations about myself as a kid, like—”she’s got the ‘gift of gab.'” I’m not sure this was a compliment (lol), but that was like my tagline.
In elementary school, I scribbled stories in my notebooks. The kids listened when I read my stories to them. In high school, I wrote for the newspaper staff (and tried to write my first ‘novel’).
In college, I majored in English for awhile, but then did what some might consider a 180 and veered off into something else (psychology), which, incidentally, was a great asset later when creating my characters.
After many years in the social work profession, writing only case notes and court reports, I finally wrote my first book. Now I have five novels published. Maybe you’ll take a look at them.
So, I guess this has been my long story leading up to answering the question of WHAT IS MY SPECIAL TALENT?, which I believe is “creating.”
I hope you’ll stop by and share your own special gifts. I’m looking forward to it.
