Meet Candis Pope

Today we’d like to introduce you to Candis Pope.

Candis, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Well, I discovered that I had a passion for writing when I was 12 years old. I was bored and looking for a way to entertain myself, which led to me writing my first short story. I was excited and shocked that I could put together such an interesting concept. From that time on, I would write occasionally, and I even contributed to a couple of small publications. As I got older, I put writing on the back burner and got caught up in the rat race of life. It wasn’t until my late 20’s that I realized that I needed to tap back into my love of writing and make my dreams come true. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Oh no, it’s definitely been challenging! I think the biggest struggle for me was getting over the mental challenges of stepping out there and believing in myself. Life has a way of snatching your dreams from you, and it’s easy to become complacent and feed into negativity. So, it was really a fight to get to a place where I felt confident enough to put myself out there and get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I’m a freelance writer, and I’ve written content for well-known brands and businesses. Once I decided to start writing again, I really wanted to hop in and get as much knowledge and experience as possible. One thing I’ve realized is that my talent is a gift, and it’s not something that everyone can do. Therefore, I take pride in contributing quality work for my clients, and that’s also what sets me apart. I don’t take my gifts for granted.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
At the moment, I’m going full speed ahead and using my writing chops to create screenplays. It’s my ultimate goal to be a pioneer and make my mark in Hollywood. I want to tell stories that have never been told and show things that have never been seen. Even though I wrote lots of articles for businesses over the years, my original passion was creative writing, and I’m so excited to be doing that again. It’s what fuels me the most! Currently, I’m teaming up High Arc Media to create some amazing content. Stay tuned!
