A Part of Me

My chosen profession is somewhat… restrictive in terms of self expression. Not presenting yourself in a certain way can result in not having a job, and for the most part I’m fine with that. However, there’s a part of me that will never be alright with having to dress and act a certain way, and that’s the part of me that I write into my work.

Basically, my main characters are the person I wish I could be. They…

  • have a funky sense of humor.
  • voice unique opinions on just about everything.
  • live unconventional lives.
  • express themselves through their clothing.
  • do not have a typical hair color/style.
  • are pierced and/or tattooed.
  • aren’t afraid to stand out.

  1. I do this, too. Well, not that list specifically, but my characters seem to resonate a part of me that I often wish I was brave enough to come out with. I think it also helps drive the story forward.
