I'm Angie Dixon. I'd like to tell you a bit about who I am and what I do.

First, I hate talking about myself in the third person, so I'm not going to.

I have known I was a writer since I was five years old. I took all the paper off the shelf.

My teacher told me to put it all back except one piece.

My best friend Mark stood up and said, "She's going to write a book." As only a kindergarten teacher can Mrs. Carnahan said, "Well, then, she'll have to write it one piece of paper at a time."

So I did. I've written more than 35 books, most of which are no longer available.

Here's what I write now:

Creativity: I've now written three editions of The Leonardo Trait, my book on life as a profoundly creative person Juggling multiple projects and ideas while

That something was, I do not have a physical writer's block. I can move my hand across the page and make words. It's a mental block, and the way I psych out my mind is to sit down and write.

Sometimes I copy words out of books until my brain decides it's willing to write again. But when I can't think what to write, I just write whatever I can, and putting words on the page eliminates writer's block for me.

I highly recommend Mundis's book. It changed my life, and it might just have saved my life.(less)

The best thing about being a writer is that, for me, it acts as really good medication. When I'm feeling out of sorts or tired or moody or really just not wanting to be part of the world, writing takes all of that away. It's like putting aloe on a sunburn. Writing, for me, lets me be more comfortable not only in the world, but in my skin.

There are many, many, MANY things I love about being a writer, but I think the calming influence writing has on my mind is my favorite.(less)
