Hello all, I'm a 24 year old university student enrolled in the business college. I'm going to be graduating soon. The particular degree I chose to pursue for money and security turned out to be something I absolutely dread, and therefore I don't see myself really committing to it in the future--at least not to the extent that I'll be successful and happy. What I wanted to do going into university was major in English Creative Writing, because I had such a talent for writing in High School and I was always teeming with ideas, opinions, characters, stories, and the like. And I'm still like this, which has translated into me recently writing screenplays and short stories. I'm writing a spec script for a TV show and am trying to hone my short story writing so I can jump into a novella or novel, for which I have some promising ideas lined up. I wrote a humorous opinion piece for my school newspaper and submitted it as an outside submission and it got put on the front page. So I was happy about that. My creative spirit just won't be silenced. And my writing hand can't be stopped. So I need to find out how I can immerse myself in a creative/writing-oriented workplace. I can write. My peers say I can write well naturally, so I want to put my pen to work. How can I really start writing for money? I hear about these freelance writing on the internet and blogging, but I'm just not sure. I imagine an office with staff writers and proofreaders. This is where I want to be. How can I get involved? I have a lot of content to offer. I can write practically anything, so long as I have some direction and structure and an air of legitimacy that goes with it. I'm a budding wordsmith with a sense of humor and can employ my insight to great effect, but I need a place to start. I need a career that complements my entrepreneurial writing endeavors (screenplays, novels, etc.) I live in Los Angeles, so I know there is written content needed here. If anyone knows how to start, what prompts to use as examples, etc. I'd appreciate it. Thanks for your time, people.
