Being creative. What does it mean? Being creative can mean solving a problem in a new way. It can mean changing the way you view problems or tasks. Being creative can mean taking calculated risks, ignoring doubt and facing fears. It can also mean breaking with routine and doing something different for the sake of doing something different. It can mean being a leader in your field. I have always been proud of my creative nature and I have carried that through into my writing, whether it be a blog post, a book for children, website content, a short story, an article, a script or a technical bulletin. I am very passionate about health, the environment, children's rights and families.
