I always wanted to be a writer

I started to write small essays and poems when I was a child. By the age of 13 I had written 2 novels, a love story and an action story. It was before the digital age and most of my work is lost now. Few people ever read my work as I was very afraid of critics, even tho everybody always loved it. I wish I could continue that hobby some day. I love to tell stories.

Everything I ever wrote was about something that happened, or based on something that happened.

By the way a few people write around here, I'm guessing I'm not alone.

Writing is basically my entire job right now. It has its pluses and minuses. Overall, though, I'm loving this project.

My regret. I studied the history of journalism in school. A topic I love and am interested in the work of the media. Yet, in grade school , I hated English class. Sentence diagramming was even more boring than multiplication tables.

I have a MFA in Creative Writing (concentration in fiction, but I consider myself a poet as well). It's more than a hobby for me and being a writer is very much a way of life. It's a specific way of looking at the world, sort of like being someone who rides a bike everywhere instead of driving a car. It's in my blood. I will always write.
