We had the pleasure getting to know copywriter/blogger Megan Rascal who will now be our new guest blogger! We asked her a few questions on creativity and inspiration, here is what she had to say!
I work in Manhattan as a copywriter and happily live in Brooklyn. I’ve been a vegan for about 7 years. New York has amazing vegan food but nothing beats a vegan cheesesteak from my hometown Philly.
How did you start writing for vegansaurus?
I moved to San Francisco in 2008 and like many SF vegans, I quickly became a big fan of Vegansaurus. Then sometime in 2009, they put a call out for new writers. I applied and out of all the hopeful vegans, they picked me!
What is your favorite creative outlet?
Writing is my big creative outlet. I’m lucky to work in a field where I get to write all the time. Although since I work in advertising, I am writing a lot but it’s for brands or companies–when I write for Vegansaurus, I get to write whatever I want.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I think people inspire me most. People are fascinating. We are all born the same way and have the same basic needs, but then everything else–the way people act, feel, live–is just pandemonium. I get my best ideas talking to other people because everyone has their own way of approaching the world and their own way of problem solving.
What does living beautifully mean to you?
I guess living beautifully to me means living in a way you are proud of. Guilt and shame weigh people down, but if you know you are always doing your best, you can radiate a light, airy happiness that others can feel.
