Why do I do it?
Like many people in various stages of academic pursuits, I'm faced with the opportunity to create, edit and reinvent my career path. My question is how will I balance providing for my family with my writing passion?
The obvious answer seems that I would write for a living.
I don't need the obvious answer; I need a strategic plan. I need to see other writers making careers with their words and writers who balance "day jobs" and writing careers. I'm interested in stories that work well and stories that need a bit of revising.
Along with writing my first novel, I write short stories, personal essays, business blog posts. I'm also a novice script writer. The ability to write both fiction and nonfiction as well as my interest in Public Relations make certain career choices intriguing and appealing.
Where will I end up?
Right now, I don't know. Each interview brings me a bit closer to imagining my Writing Life.
