Fictional Interview with the Giant Duck in Pittsburgh

What’s up duck?

The 40 foot tall colossal rubber duck currently floating in the rivers of Pittsburgh has taken the city and even the country by storm. After all, it’s the first time this art price has been in the United States. So, I got to thinking. Maybe it would be fun if someone could get the duck’s perspective on the whole experience. That being the case, I decided to use my own personal journalistic background along with my artsy side to create the first ever fictional interview with the world’s largest duck.

Me: Hello Ducky, thanks for agreeing to do this interview.

Ducky: My pleasure.

Me:  What do you think about our city of Pittsburgh?

Ducky: I love it here, this place is quacktastic.

Me:  How about the reaction you’ve gotten from the locals?

Ducky: It quacks me up to see how much buzz there is about me.

Me: Did you know anything about Pittsburgh before making your way here?

Duck: I did some research and learned a lot from WQED and Rick Sebak duck-umentaries.

Me:  Have you seen the local news coverage?

Ducky: A little but I mostly tune in for the feather forecast.

Me: Have you taken in any of the local culture?

Ducky: Sure, there’s a lot of fun stuff to do here. And the food is great! Of course, I’m still partial to simple old cheese and quackers.

Me: Thanks for your time and have a wonderful rest of your visit here in the steel city.

Ducky: Quack to ya later.

A conversation with author Christina Jeter

Christina Jeter, the author of the e-book “Celebrate Being You,” discusses her work with Creative Dreamers.

This book is a celebration of the diversity of the world and how it helps us thrive, in doing so, it should always be celebrated and never depreciated!!

CD: What made you decide to write this book?

Christina: Overcoming the troubles of my childhood and adolescents made me write this book. I wanted to show the greatness in a child and how it should be nurtured not demolished by an adult!

CD: How long did it take you to write it, from idea to completed project?

Christina: It took me about 3 years to put the idea together. The reason being is because I just came into being informed about the history of the people I used in it.

CD: So it took a lot of research?

Christina: Yes, I read the books about them (people in the book), talked to the authors, visited museums and other historical land marks. I prayed and felt I talked to them spiritually.

CD: What was the most challenging thing about writing it?

Christina: Making sure it focused on shaming the attacker (bully) instead of shaming the victim of bullying! I wanted to show how you can overcome with words and knowledge, but also be able to physically protect yourself from injustice.

CD: How about the most rewarding part?

Christina: The most rewarding part was bringing it to life and completing it. I sent it out to people before I published it and got great reviews. I hope to one day do some readings and signings at various Barnes and Noble stores and maybe even make it into a picture book, cartoon, TV series, etc!!!

CD: If there was one thing you would hope your readers take away for reading it, what would that be?

Christina: Never be ashamed about who you are! GOD doesn’t make mistakes. We all contribute to the beauty of the world. We are all super heroes. Everyone – please keep inspiring inspiration.
