I am a writer.
There, I said it.
Ever since I was a child, I loved to draw, write and create, but the writing bug bit me especially hard when I was a sophomore in high school. I continued to write in college, but the allure of a “real job” was too enticing to refuse. Though English, psychology and music have always been my primary interests, I pushed them aside for the sake of math, engineering and computer science, fields that the world convinced me would lead to true happiness in the future. I wondered how different life would have been if I had shut out the cacophony and followed my heart.
After losing a scholoarship and two dead-end jobs to stress and sickness, I believe I have been given a second chance to find out.
Follow me, if you will, on my journey to become a published writer, a journey to turn a pipe dream into a reality. The road will be long, grueling, and possibly painful, but I am determined more than ever to make my dream come true. I have no delusions of becoming a rich, overnight celebrity with my work. I just want to do what I love for a living, and there’s nothing wrong with that, right?
If you too are an unknown, up-and-coming writer, or are just curious about what goes on inside the creative mind, please, follow along. Perhaps we’ll learn from each other.
With that said, bon voyage. 😀
