This was utterly beautiful! It reminded me in some ways of a whimsical Pixar short. Kirkpatrick's writing style is as engaging as ever, and I thoroughly enjoyed this short, sweet, adorable story! A quick couple-minute read, you should definitely check this out!

THIS STORY. So short it's about the size of a long blog post. Perfectly descriptive of the isolation artists face. The melancholy sadness of being alone. The power of art to bless and to connect.

Happy sigh. I loved reading it. ;)

Best quote: After a moment, a single violin note wept behind her. Then another.

I read this aloud to my younger sisters. While it was somewhat esoteric for them, my youngest sister has announced that it was "cool and very creative". ;)

Altogether, a short but encouraging

Wow, that was neat!! It's hard to know how to write a review for it though, so I guess I'll just say, "go read it!" I really liked it - although at the beginning I wasn't sure what was going on, but I got it in the end! It's an allegory, after all!

That cover though!! *sighs happily and stares at it* So lovely!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Brief and beautifully told, this allegory left me with a wistful yet warm feeling of appreciation for creativity, both others' and my own. I'll be reading and savoring it again and again.

Create is a lovely story of two lonely creatives and the impact they can have on the world. As a writer myself, it really struck a cord with me, and reminded me how much of an impact our work can have, and how important it is to come along side other creatives. Beautifully written!

I received a free copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are my own, honest and unbiased.

A lovely, short, poetic commentary on the distance between human beings, and the ability of art to bridge the gap.
Angie Thompson
A sweet and poignant allegory for artists of all kinds. Although there were no point-blank morals given, I liked the emphasis on the fact that we were made for community, even those of us for whom it doesn't come as naturally, as well as the message that what we've been given is meant to be shared, not tucked away inside our own bubbles. Very inspiring!

This allegory is beautiful. Just go read it!
