Welcome to the Big Reveal
I enjoy reading author interviews, but often times they don’t ask the kinds
of questions I wonder about. So I’ve assembled a group of writers at
all levels, from un-agented to published, and every week I will
have a new question for them.
Are you artistic/creative in other ways?
I’m pretty mediocre at sketching, plucking at the piano, and playing guitar. I’m probably a little better than your average Joe at the drums and writing and performing comedy.
I am an actress by training. Lending itself to very character-centric stories.
Before I could write, I was telling stories through pictures. Eventually my love of words evolved to lyric and orchestral music composition. I loved crafts when younger, and event planning has always been a forte, along with stage performances–whether for singing or theatrical purposes. Mom always came to me for ideas, saying the day I quit having a hundred amazing and new ideas, was the day I quit being Crystal.
Not really. Until I started writing I never considered myself artistic at all. I used to write poetry when I was little, but I stopped doing that.
I try to be. I take the occasional art class, and I’m getting more into collage and mixed media work.
I like to try being artistic but don’t always succeed…there are many half-finished knitting/sewing projects around my house! I do play the piano and have done for sixteen years now. Writing and playing the piano are my two main creative outlets.
Do you have any artistic or creative talents?
