I should have known from an early age that I was destined to be a writer; I have always been a voracious reader, I spent my free time looking up words in the dictionary and writing in my journal and the rest of my free time writing stories and illustrating them. In college, I majored in Anthropology, but still continued to take writing courses "just for fun." Finally, in my thirties, I decided to go where my life was really leading and got a Master's degree in English. It was like coming home. Now, I spend my days proofreading depositions and writing for my blog. The proofreading pays pretty well, but the blog pays zip...but then again, I am not doing it for the money; I'm doing it because I love to write.
