The "Meg" in Nutmeg

Just Like You Copywritten 2010
Father, lead me so I can lead others.
Teach me so I can be a teacher, too.
Help me to help my brothers,
because I just want to be like

The poem above is one of many I've composed that you'll probably see, but that one best describes me and my desires.

Hey yall, I'm  Megan Finsel
                    the 'Meg' in Nutmeg
(and yes I just called myself a nut :D).

Welcome to my blog! Let me tell you about myself: 

I am a seventeen-year-old recent high school graduate.

OK, that's the "What" now for the "Who"!
    I am an  author , and these are my Thoughts and Dreams, the adventures I think up on rainy days then mold together into short stories, poems and even a novel or two (ok often a novel or two).
   Being an author is the best job in the world!
We get to ride Dragons!

Swim with Mermaids!

Fall in Love

Ride Dragons!
(wait I already said that)

LOL, there's so much freedom! So many exciting things to write about and discover; you're only limited by your imagination (and thankfully I have a pretty broad one of those).

    Books are amazing, like gateways into the creators' minds. I guess you've already figured I might kinda sorta like books. Ok, I LOVE them, I love writing and reading all kinds of books but mostly Fantasy. I love writing (nontraditional) fantasy with twisted plots, twisted characters, and exciting adventures.
I write the kind of books that I a teen...

wouldn't mind diving to the bottom of a bargain bin to get to!

    So I'll be posting little snippets of stuff I've written:

(Short stories... poetry ...  bits of my novels...  random thoughts).

    Nutmeg will kinda be like an imagination central,
a place of escape from any and all

Doldrums .

    I'm also an Artist, so you'll probably be seeing a lot of sketches and doodles that I've cooked up on occasion; maybe illustrating a story, oftentimes just quirky things I want to share. Art can bring the words of a story into 3D, and breathe life into a character. If you're an illustrator then you know what I mean! Art is a very powerful tool, and a medium I love to experiment with.

    I also like making mini-movies, so expect to see some neat little clipits of stuff I've shot as I escort you on a few of my recent  summer quests (and, boy, did I have some quests this summer!) 
    Books are exciting, wonderful opportunities for adventure; there's inspiration everywhere, even in the very air we breathe. So why don't you buckle up and come with me on a ride you won't ever forget through that gateway into the, um, exotic world of my imagination .

   Who knows...?

You might never want to return to reality again!
