I have been working hard on my writing. I never give myself any credit mainly because I have always been hard on myself. I always remind myself that I am not perfect. As far as my writing goes, I believe in myself and I believe that if I work hard enough, I will become the writer that I want to be. Not many people understand the mindset of writer or even think it’s a real job, but it can make you lots of money. I enjoy creating something with words. I enjoy putting my ideas on paper. Also, I enjoy coming up with entertaining stories and sharing them with others.
I got my bachelor’s degree in English and a Film Studies minor. I have thought on numerous occasions to go back to school for a master’s degree. I have talked about going back with a few people and none of the discussions I had with people were supportive of what I wanted to do. I don’t mind the struggle. I believe in myself. It’s hard and of course, I hate that there must be a struggle before I see success, but if there wasn’t a struggle, where would I learn the growth from. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard someone say to me go be a doctor, or a nurse or something in the medical field just because I’ll always have a job. Can I shoot for my dreams first? Can I find out if I’ll make it first?
I just want to share on my blog, my first writing platform, that I got my first writing opportunity with a with a website that’s highlighted by Martha Stewart. I can officially add published writer to my Bio. It may not be a top dollar opportunity, but it’s a start. I’m proud of it and that’s all that matters. I have a couple more opportunities that I am aiming to claim as well. Don’t let anyone tell you that your dreams are too big or not worth chasing. They’re just too small to fit in your world.
