Corinne learned to read in school as not many in her family shared the same love for it as she did and does now. Others reading intrigued her, how they could escape their own reality by delving into someone else's imagination. Inspired by how this power influenced others to expand their imagination and create worlds of their own, she joined them. Corinne was reading at an 8th grade level in 3rd grade. Like anyone else who aspires to read well, Corinne accomplished that by continuing to read, growing stronger with each book completed. She has always loved it because of where it can take a person. She feels that the book has the capability of changing ones entire perspective, and she has never been very close minded. It is sometimes hard for her to adapt to different styles of writing, to fully understand what the writer is trying to put out there. Corinne is not picky about her reading, as long as it challenges her and opens her mind to new possibilities she is excited to start the endeavor. She doesn't always find time to read at home but when she does it is nearly impossible to pry the book from her hands. She loves the idea of reading. She finds that someone who has the ability to transport a person into another reality through words typed on paper is beautiful. The visuals are created in the readers minds and everything may be perceived differently depending on the person, it opens doors to a world of opportunities in which she is infatuated with. Corinne loves being able to understand someone who blocks out our tangible world to stay engrossed in a different one.
Corinne developed her love for writing as a coping skill. She often found herself in situations where she was unable to voice her own opinion, or incapable of finding the right words to fit the circumstance, so she wrote them down. She believes that writing creates the same escape that reading does. Inspired by the stories she had learned about she was able to make her own as many others do. Believing that writing is a powerful tool that gives her the opportunity to touch not only a new part of someone else who reads it, but herself, she partakes in the art more often than not. Bass finds that anyone from anywhere can write, it is not a hard thing to transfer thoughts onto paper, she thinks that if you are up for finding out more about who you are, then you can write. Corinne believes that you don't always have to know who you are to create this form of art, sometimes it is about finding who you are. Her love for poetry only increased her appreciation for writing that favors ambiguity, which in turn started her down a path writing about life through analogies and metaphors. She finds interest in things that are not right in her face but that she has to think about. Her ideas often stem from personal issues she deals with or events she observes involving other people. She benefits most from questions from her readers and suggestions that would improve the complexity of her writings. Unless Corinne is feeling the pull of her pencil and paper heavily, she typically writes randomly when in situations that spark her creativity. She understands that her writing will never be perfect, and that no one's will. Knowing that, she feels confident about what she is writing, because it is her form of art that she can craft any way she wishes.
