Chris DiSano-Davenport is an avid reader and collector of fairy tale legends that compels her to live in two worlds. The outer world is a place she can physically hug her family and hold her dogs in relief and relaxation from the hustle and bustle of daily life experiences; and the other, well... is her escape through the sheer curtain of immortality, enchanted to create from sensibility and awareness in words and on canvas. This is her special place filled with animation, imagination, magic and mystery. She knew her purpose as a creator from childhood, as she was gifted with a passion for art that took her on a journey of self-discovery and self-teaching. Her inner world of ideas and using every medium she could get her hands on expanded h ...more

I know that sounds strange but when I paint, I paint for myself. It brings me Joy. That is what your writing should do too. Every morning I would wake up looking forward to go back into the place I created and it just wasn't a story to me, it felt like a real place, where everything is possible. It allowed me to be true to who I am in my storytelling, not what is expected of me or what I believe others want to hear/read. That also helps with writer's block; then return to your story and do all the fixing and tweaking when you are done. It took me 3 years to get my books the way I felt good about them. Parts of my stories did not come until later; your story is really a part of your own journey that you are on. You may get ah ha moments that pull your story together and come full circle or it may even take a different direction all together. Be patient. I was not at first, though it did create necessary obstacles. Feel good about what you are writing with no doubt; love what you are doing and all the rest will follow. Remember, not everyone will like your story; I have gotten so many rejections (personally and artistically in my life). It can really bring you down and force you to question if you really have what it takes. Yet if you are passionate, rejection should become a catalyst for you "not to quit." Your story is YOUR self expression! Try not to take others perceptions or opinions personally. For me it was hard in the beginning, but I have learned to use it wisely and constructively and then just let it go. Here is a link of the many literary rejections to authors who brought Joy with their stories to millions of people. Keep loving what you do and never give up!

You may ask what good is it if no one reads your books? Here is one quote by Stephen King.."I’ve written because it fulfilled me. Maybe it paid off the mortgage on the house and got the kids through college, but those things were on the side–I did it for the buzz. I did it for the pure joy of the thing. And if you can do it for joy, you can do it forever.”
That said, keep at it, (as I AM) and I bet you will be able to fulfill your readers sooner or later. I am a self taught artist. There was a time I could not paint at all, yet my passion & relentless devotion to master my skill gave me eyes to see with vision. Today, I am by far a master, but still, a willing student.

“Grampa says the grass is not greener on the other side. All grass changes with the seasons, it grows, it browns, and it can die if you do not nurture it. You must accept the changes, yet the grass is as green as you make it right here and now! Going from one meadow to another does not change the season! Or the meadow!

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“A boy was regarded King to be, in a land only a child could see. We admit it could be a difficult task, just in case you are inclined to ask, for those who would even vaguely begin, to remember the child that comes from within, of a modern world still hardened by past and rules that can make you grow up fast. Yet into the imagination, we hope you escape, from beliefs that your life may potentially shape; try to let go of what you normally resist, while exploring the way nature and a boy co-exist.”

“Our traditions teach us the past is not forgot, yet the past repeats the future believe it or not. If we dwell on the negative, we continue to make, an unhealthy life we must never forsake. Our fairy ring teaches us cause and effect, what we give to the world, returns to us direct!”
