Have you ever seen the movie “Out Of Africa,” starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford? Well, if not let’s just say that aside from the incredible scenery they used in filming there was one part of the story that really resonated with me. After dinner one night two guests ask Karen to tell them a story, they’ve heard that she’s a wonderful storyteller. She asks them to give her three random words, and she proceeds to weave a spellbinding story with those three things in it.
I’ve always wanted to be able to do that! I’m still not quick enough to do it out loud as she does in the movie, I have to write it down first. I have found that with practice; the writing is a lot of fun to do. So, be my guest, please ~ have a seat. Give me three words ~ and let me tell you a story.
My name is Monique. I’ve been writing, wanting to write, reading…since I was little. It’s simply how I’ve always expressed myself. I’ve recently had a couple of magazine articles published and am pretty excited about that.
