I love my day job, I really do...but...I'd rather be writing.
Going to school for five years plus interning, garnered me some really cool letters after my name that make me an expert in something. And it's that something that I spend some days every week doing. It's the giving profession. Not the one that keeps on giving. The one you give to others. Also known as a helping profession. And a healing profession.
I love helping, giving and healing. More than that though is when people help themselves, that's where I get all squishy. My tag line is "enable people to heal themselves" or one of my taglines anyway. I've got a briefcase full of 'em and the one I don depends on my mood.
I've always had a 1 year plan, a 5 year plan and a 10 year plan. I still do. My 1 year is to work even less at my day job and my 5 year is to wrap it up and write full time. Hell if I didn't live in the most expensive place in the world, I could make like a tumbleweed and write full time now.
The thing about dreams is that they really do come true. First you gotta dream 'em. That's what it starts with - the spark - the thought. Then the word - spoken and/or written. Then comes the doing. It's called magic my friend, or positive thinking, or Abraham-Hicks, or affirmations, or a myriad of other things.
This is how stories are born and why they are read.
