What Do You Write About Corrie Ann?

Now this is a question that I have received on countless occasions. “What do you write about Corrie Ann?” Sometimes I falter when I answer because there isn’t a clear cut answer. Well, there wasn’t until recently. My answer now is, “I write about things that I feel inspired to ponder, reflect on and share.

If you’ve ever heard of a renaissance soul, I’m one of them. (If you haven’t, you can go here to find out about the concept).

This is a great book as well, especially if you relate to being on.

Most of the time I love being someone who is massively creative, with a plethora of ideas to write about, research or teach. That said, I do find myself a bit overwhelmed when I want to sit down and write something. Will it be related to integrative nutrition, career coaching, essential oils, a review of a book, or maybe a new cookie recipe? It is one of the reasons why I don’t experience writer’s block. I always have something to write.

As a career coach I sometimes guide individuals to figure out what their passion is. I tend to attract individuals who are like me. I don’t have one passion, so picking one topic to stick to in my writing, and on this blog, will be difficult. I’m going to attempt to create some sort of theme, but I cannot guarantee it will be in one area. Hey, I’m being honest here.

The one thing I do know is that I will write, share my ideas, ask for ideas, teach where I can, and create an arena where we can discover more about the writing world.

In case you were wondering, here is a list of some of my interests/passions:

  • Writing (duh!)
  • Books
  • Fishing (trout!)
  • Dancing
  • The Law of Attraction
  • Antiques
  • Turning old furniture into new treasures
  • Essential oils
  • Natural medicine
  • Health coaching
  • Career coaching
  • Life Purpose coaching
  • Vision boards
  • Nutrition
  • Baking (cookies!)
  • Creating new recipes
  • Performance Management
  • Continuous improvement
  • Archeology/anthropology
  • Native American culture
  • Gods and Goddesses 

I’ll stop there. See what I mean? Lot’s of interests. I am a learner (Strengthsfinder confirmed this years ago), so my life revolves around discovery, research and absorbing information. My favorite sanctuary is a University library. It is my happy place.

So, there you have it. I hope this provides some insight into what you might find here at my blog. Knowing me, I’m sure I will laser in on a couple of areas and stick with them for awhile.

Your turn – please tell me your passion(s). Do you like to write? If so, what about? Please share in the comments.

I love to write! I’ve made my fair share of mistakes in my life but one of the biggest was not continuing to write. I stopped after 2005 I won’t get into the reasons for stopping. At the end of the day, it all falls back on me whether I had help not following through on my dreams or not. Last year I decided to get back into writing. I started at Full Sail University originally as a game design student but my heart was telling me to switch to writing so three months in I changed to the creative writing for entertainment program and that’s among the best decisions I’ve made in life. Besides networking with you which I honestly consider a privilege and a highlight, in the last year I’ve written a television script and written content for video games. I do freelance work for various clients. I’m constantly updating/polishing my resume and cover letters. I’m in negotiations with a few clients to write their personal biographies. I’ve already secured a publisher if both parties agree. I’m interning at a sports company where I write college football stories and I’m also interning for a huge company that I can’t mention at the moment. On top of that, I tutor college students who are in the same program as I am.

I do all of that in addition to my school work and I have a couple of projects of my own that I haven’t touched in months due to working on things for everybody else. My goal originally was to be a video game writer and while I have my foot in the door, having experienced television writing and renewing my love for sports writing, I’m keeping myself open to whatever opportunities come my way. As far as what I like to write, video games and sports are what most people know about me. What they don’t know is that I like to write about real-world issues. A lot of my writings deal with personal experiences. I tackle issues such as bullying, mental health, racism, and relationships to name a few. Sometimes I’ll use personal experiences and sometimes it will be pure fiction but with a real tone/message. In times where it’s a personal story, I will personally ask anybody who is/was involved for their permission to use them in the story. Most of the time they say yes but sometimes I’ve been told no and I’m fine with that. I usually compromise and either change their name or I’ll change the situation a little to not portray them in a negative light but at the same time not lose the impact of the story. Either way, I always let them read it before I do anything with it. I’ve changed the way I play video games. Before, I just played since I’m a gamer and that’s what gamers do. Now I do things differently. I’ll play a new game for two weeks maximum or until I finish the story mode (if the game has one) as a gamer. After either of those things are accomplished I start to play as a writer. I pay close attention to the dialogue, to the surroundings/background. When the characters speak, does the movement of their lips match what they’re saying? Is there too much dialogue, not enough? I make notes and I study them. I write down what I would have done differently or kept the same.
