I stumbled across this creed by way of Marie Ann Bailey at 1WriteWay, and I must say the creed had me at the word “rebel.” I’ve always considered myself something of a rebel or maybe it’s because I know I’m a little odd and the word rebel just sounds better.
reb·el noun ˈrebəl/ : a person who rises in opposition or armed resistance against an established government or ruler.
I like the idea of being a rebel writer, going against the grain, taking the non-traditional route, the road less traveled. I feel as if I’m spending my effort in a worthy cause. It inspires me.
So what about you? Are you feeling a little rebellious?
