Hello, my name is Danielle Bookhart and I am the founder of DaniBo. (Can you tell by the name? ;)) You can call me Dani.
I want to start off by saying. I am not the child of published writers or exceptionally artistic individuals. I did not major in English, Communications, or Journalism (but I did always receive As in Language Arts during grades K-12). I have not studied at the feet of any of the Great Literary Minds of the World or taken classes at any Modern Day Art Schools. I have yet to attend a Writer’s Workshop or Creative Convention.
My love of writing has shown me that many people have a need to express themselves!
I have always been a lover of the written word. And once I learned how to write, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I knew I wanted to write books. That has been my goal since I was 5 years old. I’m currently 23 years old. My dream career has not changed.
I have also noticed the attitude that people are beginning to have towards writing. It seems that people only equate writing to school or business. But there was creative writing before there was professional writing. There has always been storytelling, and then came the business writing. I want to bring back the love (or at least like) of creative writing.
That’s my inspiration behind starting this company. I want to reintroduce people to creative writing. Along the way I also want to introduce people to many forms or creative expressions. I think we have forgotten just how much we depend on the creative world, and in particular I am fighting for the written word. I believe in the power of imagination on paper. What motivates you to be creative???
<3 I hope to spread my love to as many as possible! <3
