What I Want

The other day it came up in conversation that someone had gone to school for a subject, graduated, all that jazz, only to now be unsure if that's what they want. I suppose that actually happens a lot.

For more than a decade I have been chasing the same dream; to be a published author. I want to find my books on the shelves of bookstores. If one of them happens to get turned into a movie, even just on TV, that would be ultimately awesome. Even better, the fame of JK Rowling with the career of Stephen King. Hey, I'm writer, don't blame me for letting my imagination go crazy!! Honestly, though, if I can just support myself with my writing I'll be exceptionally happy.

Now, in regards to doing something and finding out it's not what you want...Even with all the paperwork (author info, book info, marketing, etc), contracts, edits, and whatnot I can still say wholeheartedly that being a writer is what I want. Yes, I'm aware that should things work out I will have book tours and signings and conventions, all of which I am 100% fine with.

Every story I sell...

No matter how much I want to bang my head against the desk during edits...

Writing is in my blood. It's my passion.

I wouldn't even know what to do with my life otherwise!!
