The incredibly multi-gifted Xio Axelrod poses this week’s challenge:
If you weren’t a writer, what other creative career would you most want to try?
Okay, here it is. I love being a writer and I would never want to give that up. But, I also always wanted to be an actress. The idea of jumping into another persona has always seemed fascinating and intriguing. I tried my hand at community theatre a few times and loved it. But to actually pursue it as a career…? It’s such a hard road full of rejections. I suppose like writing. The two careers are similar in the process of trying to succeed. You have to put your heart out there and hope that someone who has the power to ‘make it happen’ will set their sights on you and your work. That’s the thing about being in the creative pursuits, as opposed to a ‘real’ job. You never know from one day to the next what will happen. There are no 9-5 parameters. We work in the adrenaline rush of acceptance (or even the dream of acceptance).
Then again, I’ve always loved art and the idea of putting paint to canvas every day….
Well, enough daydreaming. Time to get back to my WIP.
Let’s see what the wonderful and talented Susan Peterson Wisnewski would chose.
