Penelope Aaron- Author

penelopeWhat is your creative mission?

I hope to write stories that entertain, uplift, inspire, and occasionally cause readers to burst into laughter, with some sort of a life lesson learned.

What do you love about what you do?

I love that I can slay people on the daily! I can do it without guilt, prison time, or eternal hellfire.

What have you learned from your successes/ failures?

I have to keep going. Failure is just a lesson in what not to do next time.

How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?

I look around my everyday life and realize that its just too hilarious not to share with others. Then I pick up my pen and start writing again.

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

The world is full of obstacles and distractions that will stop you from achieving your dreams. You have to carve out time to make it happen. If it means getting up two hours before the rest of society, then that’s what you have to do.

How has your art and creativity healed you?

My writing has been a medicine that I didn’t even know I needed. It has made me realize just how precious the people in my life are to me. I appreciate every day, minute, and second.

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?

Stop thinking you can’t do it- you can! Stop wasting time sleeping- get up early and make it happen Be fearless- ask for what you want even when you are uncomfortable Work harder, longer, faster- you have to put the work in Never give up- if what you’re doing isn’t working, innovate until it does
