Deanna Cabinian— Writer of Charming Books

DEANNAWhat is your creative mission?

To write charming books that inspire people and make them feel better about the world.

What do you love about what you do?

I love that it keeps me up at night.

What have you learned from your successes/ failures?

Just keep creating. Always be producing. Sometimes you have to forge a different path to your dreams and that’s ok.

How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?

One foot in front of the other, fast or slow, doesn’t matter.

Have you ever encountered resistance from family, friends, or the world in general? How did you overcome those kinds of blocks?

Yes. It all comes down to: I am who I am, take me or leave me. Even if you don’t agree with me or doubt me, watch me do it anyway. I love trying to prove people wrong.

How has your art and creativity healed you?

Writing is the one thing I can count on even when everything else has gone to hell.

What are your NFA Bullet points? What steps would you recommend for anyone who wants to kick some ass and get their creative dreams off the ground?

Results not excuses. Squash the voice that tells you you can’t do something. Nothing is accomplished without hard work.
