I am tired. Life has taken so many turns, but I am still drawn to writing. I have always wanted to write. I even garnered somdecent e attention through humor columns and freelance journalism in my 20's. I also had many options to move forward ft journalist, masters thesis that oud have been a play, butwe don't always end up where we want do we? We all have regrets when it comes to writing. I think that is the most important part of it. There does come a day though where you realize you aren't the center of attention, and that shouldn't be your main objective in life. I work in a library now- pay is low, but I can take classes for free. At age 39 I have decided to do two things: Join a forum to meet other writers, and to pursue a degree in Creative writing. I start this fall. I'm excited and fighting off all of the voices that have slowed me in the past (study Science, become a math teacher, computer programmer) this time I move forward. I am writing, reading, and working hard towards the goal of being a published creative author.
