The “writer”

Growing up to be a writer wasn’t always my first choice. Actually, my first choice was to go to college to become a Gypsy. In my defense, I was 7 and my favorite movie was The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

 I grew up a little more when I turned 10, and I set my sights on becoming a writer. I would write about anything and everything. I was that really weird kid who got excited every time a teacher assigned an essay, and I always wrote over the word/page limit.

I got sidetracked as I grew older (you can count my “declared major” of Veterinary Medicine as proof of that), but I eventually found my way back to writing.

Now I’m hoping to finish my first draft by the end of the year. Wish me luck?

  1. Procrastination is great. Desperation is a form of inspiration. It can spring up truly great writing. Or the most terrible, worthless piece of terribad garbage in the history on the universe. You and I are kind of in the same boat. Keep up the good work.

    • Thank you! I wish you the best of luck with finishing your first draft. I am going through the same struggle, so that’s something to take comfort in. We can complain together!

  2. you have company! i’m working towards the same deadline. if i didn’t procrastinate so much i probably could have written a thesis on procrastination. anyway, all the best to all!

  3. Good luck! I can so relate to the distractions and life that manages to get in the way of writing. I’m a great starter, but lazy finisher when it comes to writing novels. I’m working to finish my first draft by the end of the year, tool (no pressure, right? :))
