    The parts of your soul you refuse to recognize.

    Here it is.

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Ferret, Sep 14, 2008.

    It's my junior year: time to figure out what the blibitty I'm going to do with my life. I've decided--I'm supposed to write. After reflection, prayer and a summer of experience in my other area of choice (Pastoral Ministries), I've come to the conclusion that I am a writer and that's why I'm here.

    By the end of this school year (May 29), with this forum and God as my witness, I will have one of my short stories published, or at the very least rejected by every publisher in North America.

    I just thought I'd share.

    Going straight for writing takes a lot of guts. Good Luck.

    ^Define "going straight for writing", please.

    I'm in his shoes, in some ways. In others, not so much.

    But that's a different discussion altogether. :)

    Going for it without a back-up plan. I think this picture sums it up pretty well...

    I admire your testicular fortitude and wish you the best, but I'm not expecting this to turn out well. Day job.
