Building a Castle With Words

My book – THE NUN’S DRAGON – is finally out there for the public to
find. I always feel amazed when I have finished writing something…words are the stones from which we construct these
castles in the air. How do we find those words and how do they
support the vision we want to create?
We know that real creation is a mystery of our own real life
coming together with something else that makes the vision seen
not only to the artist but also to a wider grouping of eyes.
What does one do when words are absent? Is this why our first glimpses of art were cave paintings and Venus figures? Word made
Flesh? or Flesh made Word?

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
