Perhaps I’m aging myself a bit when I tell you that I watched it every day after school. I couldn’t wait to see what was behind Door Number One, Door Number Two and Door Number Three.

I cheered with the contestants when they discovered a new car, or a trip to Italy, and wept with them when all they found was a donkey. Wha, Wha…

Doors are mysterious and often as I’m creating, I find myself opening a multitude. Whether it be opening a door to a friend looking for design advice, or opening the door on an interesting plot twist during a writing project. As each door opens, my curiosity  grows.

I wait with anticipation, what will it be this time? How will my creativity grow and flourish with the opening of each door? And just like in the game show there will be times when I receive a donkey, and a project is a bomb.

But at those moments it’s time to pick myself up and see what’s behind door number 3…
