Day 57 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 57: Fact and Fiction

Fiction Reflecting Fact

Fiction Reflecting Fact

Investing in stories and characters

Rooting for or against

Draws you in and holds your attention

Page after page, scene after scene, and episode to episode

 

You know it’s not real

I’m frequently told

And the fact is irrelevant

If fictional stories weren’t intended to evoke reaction

Than why should writers spend our time creating them

 

You gasp in awe, cry in shared sadness,

And cheer in solidarity

The fact remains: fiction matters to those who create it and the ones who enjoy it

 

**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 54 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
