My name is Samone. I've been writing for years but never thought of wanting to make a job out of it, until now. I'm unemployed and have been for awhile. The way the economy has been lately, it's not easy finding a job. I decided to take my writing to a whole different level and hopefully get paid doing it. Thank you for your time.
