I'm a writer / editor / creative / a dreamer & doer and a change agent. I coach creatives and teach teens. I lead a start up nonprofit called Mint Artists Guild in Detroit. I leap and nets appear, and sometimes chocolate! Kindness and wine and stories flow freely in my life.

"Leap and the net will appear." This became my motto a few years ago and now I have a lot of nets!
Fundraiser for arts and good causes. Italian ice and homemade soup entrepreneur. Selling colored pencils and chalk along the sidewalk.
My childhood phone number and a handful of poems.
It depends on what they need to learn.
Vickie’s CreativeMornings activity
You should start projects because you feel like you are going to either explode, or vomit, or both. You’ve gotta have that kind of burning desire in your stomach to do it.
Find somebody who disagrees with you on everything. Go argue with them as often as you possibly can. Get scrappy. Blood will be drawn. That's how you have to think about it. What this does is it's going to help you define your ideas. When they're challenged you're going to be forced to shape them. You're going to be forced to bag them up.
If you're good at everything, you're not groundbreaking at anything.
The more innovative, smart, and creative you are, the more courageous you have to be.
Invest your life in what you love.
Storytelling and play have the same DNA.
