Ginger Me...

The other day I was listening to the lyrics of "Ginger Me Slowly" by Somi and thought how strikingly it applies to me as a creative writer. For starters, I love that the lyrics put me in a very sexy and seductive mood with words like "Ginger me, with pillow talk and pretty things...with poetry and roses in the  afternoon...with trips to Monaco and to the Nile...with power and humility..."

These words take me to another place and have me thinking how things, places and people affect and inspire me as a creative writer. When I receive gifts from someone, it's special and close to my heart and I'm thankful for the time they spent thinking of me. When I travel  to places both near and far, I relish the newness of the culture and the energy I derive from the experiences. And when I meet new people, it's a joy to see how much they enrich my life even if it's just for a season.

As a creative writer, these experiences ginger me and make me embrace, enjoy and appreciate life even more. They are like life lessons that shape my writing to create something new and fresh for my readers while giving them an insight into my life. So, ginger me but ginger me slowly!
