I invited around 70 writers/bloggers to write a piece about whether or not they're typical of their sign, and how its traits affect their writing life ~ if at all...

Today's Gemini is Australian blogger Norah Colvin, who has a passionate interest in education, and shares others' blog posts of interest all over cyberspace, with her online wingéd heels!
Welcome, Norah, and please tell us about yourself ~

"I don’t believe in the ability of star signs to define an identity or predict life events. I choose free will over destiny. However I do believe that everything is connected and that our traits are influenced by the interaction of nature and nurture. Stars and planets are parts of nature, but whether these entities influence life events is open for conjecture.
"Like a typical Gemini, I love to think. Learning, is my passion. The by-line on my blog, ‘Live Love Laugh Learn … Create the Possibilities’, surprisingly, probably sums up the Gemini in me quite nicely.
I, like other Geminis, love to amalgamate information from different sources to create new ideas. The ideas may never materialise, but the formulation is energising; energising in a way that physical exercise never is: I am cerebral, though could never be considered intellectual. I may have a superficial understanding of many things, but I am a loyal, rather than superficial friend."
"Communication is important in my roles as teacher and writer. I can be sociable (when and how I choose) and am very interested in others, especially their ideas. As an introvert, though, I am more a listener than a talker and not really what would be described as chatty.
An airhead maybe; I love birds and butterflies and views from the air; but don’t like heights or closed in spaces. Give me freedom to think outside the square and definitely, don’t fence me in (unless I’ve got a good book and some writing tools)!"
Norah, you've just written a piece describing all the traits of the typical higher Gemini! I love it when these pieces show so much of the sign, so often more than the author realises... Norah's Twitter bio says that she loves learning and education ~ and I'd like to add that she is very cheerful and communicative online :) You can follow her on Twitter, and have a look at her multi-facted and educational blog HERE.
Now, which famous Gemini writers to choose for Norah? I've gone for two who have written books for children as well as adults:
...namely Salman Rushdie, author of Haroun and The Sea of Stories
and Luka and the Fire of Life...
... and former Poet Laureate John Masefield, who wrote
The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights.
