I’ve always been a writer. In fact, I have kept almost everything I have ever written from childhood to the present. Whatever is not in my possession, my mom has. Though writing has always been a favorite pass-time, as far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. So of course, when it was time to choose a career path, I chose teaching. Not right away though. I fumbled around in other fields before “coming to my senses”. But ultimately, teaching is what I would be doing for the rest of my life . . . right?
Well, I found myself in a place where my career was no longer a joy. I felt sorry for my poor students, and my own children. I was taking my frustrations out on them, and it wasn’t fair to them or me, for that matter. It was time for me to take a break. I didn’t want to quit. I just needed to step back and take some time to focus on getting my family back and finding my passion for teaching again. I love teaching too much to hate it. I just needed time. So . . . I resigned. So now what?
Maybe I should just focus on my writing for a while. Yeah, that sounded like a plan. I mean, after all, I’ve always been a writer. I just never did anything with it. That settles it. I’m going to be a writer.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?! There’s no turning back now. I no longer have a traditional job, so writing is my full time job. How am I going to make this work? Follow me on my journey as I fumble through finding my way to becoming a writer.
