Shan Gill on Drawing Inspiration From Her Childhood to Create Her Book Cosmic Kitty - video

As a child, author and life coach Shan Gill would draw or doodle as a means of escaping challenging situations such as being bullied. It wasn't until a few years ago that she realized there was much more to these doodles. An intuitive painting workshop at a retreat helped Gill rediscover the characters and worlds she doodled as a child and uncover the deeper meaning behind them. Gill left the retreat knowing that her main character, Cosmic Kitty, was meant to be a voice piece for her larger platform. Gill strongly encourages new writers to tap into their childhood to understand your greater purpose or path. Doing so may lead to new story concepts or ideas and allow you to better connect with your readers.
