Being A “Troublemaker” . . .

Since my focus here is on Reading, Writing, and Publishing, I want folks to know that I’m a maverick when it comes to all three.

I read to feed my Muse, not to entertain myself or meet others’ expectations or gain social talking-points.

I write and publish to feed the reader, not to make money or prove some point or gain fame.

I’ve done some explaining of those rationales and will undoubtedly do more.

Being the way I am, some see me as a “troublemaker”.

Amy Sundberg recently wrote the post, Becoming a Troublemaker.

You would do well to click through and read her thoughts.

Here’s a little bare bit:

“What I am coming to realize is that conflict isn’t always inherently bad, even on an interpersonal level. It can bring about much-needed change; it can allow us to finally find our voices. It can open up channels of communication, help us discover and create new opportunities, and allow us to stand up for ourselves when we’re being treated poorly.”

Reading books that cause conflict can be good for the soul.

Writing books that explore conflict can be healing.

Publishing books that conflict with traditional genres, styles, and expectations can cause some productive “Trouble” :-)
