I probably should title this blog...too many projects in the frying pan! Of course that's my nature, always has been. No matter what I'm into, I'm into too many things at once. Take my writing...I've always wanted to write, ever since I could remember. I wrote a children's book in grade school. Wish I still had it. In High school, I was afraid to admit I liked writing. I was afraid to pursue writing as a career, hobby, or even an interest. Why? English was only my favorite class when we were studying creative writing. Otherwise it was one of my worse. My grammar...spelling...well, can't you tell? But what I know now and didn't know then, that spelling and grammar can be learned. My writing, well, that's a passion. I'm still afraid to admit to people that I've written a Novel, working on three others, and a book, and a private personal testimonial book. I've started and left hanging, several blogs, written tons of journals, and notes here there and everywhere. I've enjoyed two Creative writing courses, some articles (and have had couple of them published in magazines.) I know this sounds nerdish, but I actually love to write bookkeeping, government, and customer service offices about my needs, complaints, and appeals. It actually works though. I've solved problems and saved money over the years with those letters. Not to mentioned how I made my way to passing grades answering essay questions. I must say I am good at writing about something I know absolutely nothing about. Either my teachers thought I knew what I was talking about, or didn't want to take the time to read my essays and graded it with a high score just because I took the time to write. haha!
I have toughened up a bit though and am telling people, family. I'm letting people read my stuff, even though I figure they hate it and just don't want to hurt my feelings. Well, even though nobody may like it, or my writing may never get published, I do enjoy writing and it seems to be an outlet for me. Sort of like my own personal therapist! :)
I've been saying for the last 30 years that I will go back to school and get my degree. Now I'm trying to figure out when and what do I want my degree in? It used to be teaching, and as much as I love to teach, I'm thinking now more like writing. After all, if I can learn how to write correctly, with my passion, maybe...just maybe...I can polish up my books and novels and publish a book or two.
