THE LUCKY 13!
the bear woman
secret mutant power:
growling, roaring, making a mess
current art medium/creative endeavor i am exploring:
the [re?]birth of my soul.
relatedly, I'm also currently hard at work on my second novel. my first published novel is available HERE.
a secret message i found in the last week:
this one (created from two posters displayed in Aeropostale's window at the mall)
a stranger i interacted with recently:
a man at the coffee shop where I go to write. he comes here to study. I told him that I am writing fiction. I wonder if I'll be brave enough to tell him what my book's title is and where he can check it out, if I see him here again.
a word that means a lot to me right now:
fearless (a la #myfearlessyear2014)
when i don’t feel like my art matters i tell myself:
it matters to me, and that is enough.
i knew i was an artist when:
I realized that I am less healthy in body, mind, heart, and spirit when I am not writing or creating art.
a rule i like to break:
the ones designed to keep us small, neat, nice, and not-true
this is what the secret message society means to me:
encrypted sacred messages of solidarity, encouragement, and subversively deep thought from and for the messy ones.
here is something i created that i want to share with you:
if we meet on the street we’ll know each other as undercover artists by:
the fierce and unquenchable fire in our eyes that burns behind the tears.

Her words and art have appeared in various publications, such as Somerset Studio, to linger on hot coals, Still Standing Magazine, Wild Goslings, and Disney's Family Fun. In addition to her quirky little family and their three naughty dogs, Beth is in love with luscious color, moon-gazing, and dancing wild. She writes soul into flesh at her blog. You can read another inspiring interview with Beth HERE.
Each month I am featuring one Secret Message Society Member, both in the Zine and on my blog. I want you to see some of the creative ways these artists think, explore, live. When you open the Zine to the middle you will see an enticing double page spread designed by the centerfold artist. There will be a companion post here on my blog where I ask them a Lucky 13 questions. Want to join our grassroots movement of artists who are actively collecting, creating and inviting Secret Messages into their life?! You can subscribe here and/or get more details.
