Does anybody here feel like they were born to write or is it just me ? Like it is what you have always wanted to do and nothing else ? I am just a little confused about where I am going. You see I was bullied badly from the ages of 6 to 17 and it kind of followed me from school to school because I was a really shy kid and very ( painfully) thin. Ever since I have had absolutely no ( zero) interest in doing anything with my life just writing. I started writing when i was about 6 and have wanted to do it ever since. Is it normal to have no interest in any job apart from writing? I work and have done all my life but I just don't know if my desire to write is because I was born to write or because I fell in love with the idea of writing as an escape from life. What I am saying is, Was I born to write or have I been depressed all these years ? Is my desire to write just post dramatic depression . I just want to write with all my heart and soul. Has anybody ever wondered this also ? Does anybody else want to write and nothing else. I mentioned to one of my work colleagues that I write and just want to write and she said ( something along these lines ), " we all have dreams but dreams don't pay the rent." But is it a dream ? It doesn't feel like one. If feels like I have to do it. Or was I born this way. To write ? Sorry if this is going off topic or sounding more like it should be posted on Yahoo answers or in an agony column. But I just would like to know what you think.
