In a Literary Newsletter!

Hi friends!

Last week I was featured in a local Dayton literary newsletter by Fred Marion and thought I would share…(P.S. I was tickled!) I also want to mention that in the new year I will be reducing the blog to once per week – except in case of news…

“How can we live more creatively? A one-question interview with Dawn Paul

Q: How can people live more creatively?

A: ‘Taking advantage of opportunities that arise with an open mind allows one to access mental possibility. I often refer to my mind as a faucet of creativity that I turn on and off – which is easier after I have explored or learned something new that inspires me. Looking at art, focusing intently on a song, taking a walk through a park, a mall or a touristy location are all ways to turn on the faucet of creative flow.’

Dawn blogs biweekly at DMPaul.com. She’ll be indie publishing the first in a series of children’s books, “The Tales of Christian Tompta: GNOMELING,” on March 31, 2017. She was kind enough to share a photo of her art room. She uses one desk to make art (the left desk) and other to write.”

Thanks to all who’ve been reading my blog this past year!

Let’s start 2017 with a bang!
