gratitude inspiresCindy Georgakas
I’m very excited to share that I was voted Author of The Month, and share my interview with you from SpillWords Press. Thank you so much Dagmara.K and her team for their support and to all of you for your vote for which I am extremely grateful and humbled.
Here’s an excerpt of the interview:
We offer our first and exclusive Q&A Interview with Cindy Georgakas, a writer whose literary works have been featured on our Spillwords pages as well as being Author of the Month of April 2023.
- What does it mean to be selected as Author of The Month?
It means the world to me to know that my work has been acknowledged by so many writers that I admire. I’m honored people took the time to vote for me, just in time for my book baby Re-Create & Celebrate: 7 Steps To Turn Your Dreams Into Reality coming out on May 20th. Thank you truly for believing in me and casting your vote.
- How have your friends and/or family influenced your writing?
My friends, family, clients, and colleagues are constant resources for inspiration. Their support and admiration of my work infuse me with energy that ignites my creative juices. Bearing witness to their strength facing a difficult situation or hearing a word or sentence from one of them that kindles a fire inside my belly, stimulates my creative juices.
- What inspires you to write?
My desire to let each person know that they are ok exactly how they are and to honor themselves for their beauty and their imperfections alike. Some of the people I wish I could help with my writing will never read my work so when it falls on ripe ears and people who can make use of my words it is deeply satisfying knowing I am being helpful to someone that is ready to take my words into their heart for healing and self-growth.
- What was your writing catalyst?
Covid was a silver lining for me as I learned to take my business to a new level of service. I had to use my creative energy to teach people to exercise and massage on Zoom and outside using balls, foam rollers, and other props for self-care. Life coaching sessions expanded because of the need to connect from so much isolation and my writing became instrumental both for myself and them to bridge the gap of separation. While I always sent a monthly newsletter, my writing expanded as a way to create inroads.

So much to be grateful for and I have all of you to thank. I can wait to see as many of you that can make the launch party Saturday.
