Dare to Dabble. Are you a Dabbler?

          I'm not just a writer, I'm a Jill of all trades and master of few. I'm a Dabbler and proud of it. God gave me a gift of creativity; I like to plan and create, but when I see the end I'm through, finished, the challenge is gone. Then I'm ready to do something else. Slap my hands? I don't think so. I was 60+ before I realized that Dabbling is okay for me and you.

Do you have a story to tell and don't know where to start?
Do you approach creative writing or crafts projects with enthusiasm and then lose interest?
Are you curious about everything and wonder how to fit it all in?
Do you wonder how to keep your passion for writing/creating burning?
Do you need methods to unblock writer's Block?

If your answer is yes to any of the above, you are a Dabbler!!   I'm presenting free information for you from my new book.



Webster states that to "dabble" means to play, especially with the hands, to work at anything in a superficial manner. It also means to experiment, or tryout. I try my hand at a number of crafts projects as well as writing. I don't waste too much time or dawdle. I'm constantly learning. What I learn enhances my writing and is a lot of fun.
Without getting technical, here is the plan for future blogs on Dabbling.
1. I will present a Dabbling theme, like quilting or basket making, or writing memoirs and give a brief personal story.
2. Websites for the Dabble theme will be listed for additional information.
2.I'll present a challenge to try this craft (or idea) and prompts to include it in your writing.
3. Finally, I'm asking for a short comment (100 words or less) on your experience with this topic (tips, innovative twist or techniques) One or more of these will be posted on the next blog.
Join the fun next time as we explore brain activities to assess what you know and have a passion for.
