I have made a habit out of placing new people I meet in one of my films or plays. It’s something I have always done. I have had a passion for reading since I was young. As I got older, my passion directed me toward the path of creative writing. I love writing Half Rhyme poems and short stories and can write a play in less than 30 minutes, under the right circumstances. I do most of my writing after midnight, with a pad of paper or iPad.
I perfected my skills while writing short stories for men to give their wives. I needed to write efficiently and quickly, while still keeping the content powerful, so I would ask the client to describe their love interest in 5 words. I would then use those 5 words to write their story. When I write, the scene plays out in my head. I see a woman talking or a man passionately kissing a woman. I see the frightened face of a victim. It’s as if I’m watching a movie that I need to translate for others to read.
Unless it’s necessary to the story, most people never realize that I only generally describe my characters. I never give them a race. I do this so that anyone reading the story can place themselves in the exact situation I am describing. Often, the reader will call a friend to let them know they were reading a story about them. That usually doesn’t happen when the characters’ races are described.
I embrace my passion for creative writing to help me when designing dresses. I first create a story about the dress because it makes the dress come alive to me. I imagine the woman who will be wearing it - is she funny or demure? Arrogant or gentle? And when a commission is involved, the dress simply takes on a life of its own as I get to spend more time with its intended owner. I interview her, asking subtle questions she would never consider important. Their answers give me an intimate look at who they are and what design would work best for them. In the end, it’s more than a dress. It becomes a work of art to be interpreted and admired.
