Beth Bruno: Taking Creative Risks...
Writing may not be your secret passion. You might long to sing professionally, dabble in photography, create films or dance on stage. Maybe that unique invention of yours will sell, if you take the time to develop it and bring it to light. You are the only person who holds you back....
