About Colleen Clifford
Did writing come as a natural gift? Yes I think it did.
I was always a creative thinker and the Magic Bag was just a pure adventure for my mind. I was bored. I sat down one afternoon and started writing. No skill. No thinking. Just wrote. I finished this little story in 3 weeks and then proceeded to take another seven years to edit, proof read and get it illustrated. The power of persistence. I realised after I received my Fine Art Degree that that’s what I had learned. Perseverance. Because, it matters not how talented you are with words you have to have a certain diligence to write. Its hard work. People read your ‘brilliance’ and correct it vigorously. Many times I wonder how many tomes there are in these diligent critics. No matter. I have done it and I have the proof of my diligence.
So, whether this journey is short or long, I shall endeavour to have fun. As luck would have it I’m too old to care if it’s long or short. I will practice my craft daily to honour my publishers, my editors and my illustrators. For they believed in me. And that’s a rare commodity in this modern jungle.
