Oddly enough, I don’t get asked this question very often, which I consider odd because I’ve frequently been asked, “so what is your plan for college?” and I’ve answered with, “oh I want to major in English and creative writing” ever since I knew it myself – which was between two-and-a-half and three years ago. I remember always being fascinated with words and writing – I was an avid reader, and I think I started writing at least more than 7 or 8 novels before I was old enough to really put the work into making it a serious, mature project.
Truthfully, though, up until almost three years ago, I wanted to be a veterinarian, not a writer. But, to put it in a nutshell, God whacked me on the head and told me a thing or two about what His plan for me is. Now, I’m not saying that my writing is “inspired,” exactly, but I do believe it’s what I’m to be doing with my life – creative writing, especially.
Ever since that time a few years ago, I’ve begun to truly pursue improvement, and now I’m an obsessive learner. I try every way I can to get better – getting critique, joining literature communities, and getting read! Including this blog, I post my writing on four other websites – and all of them have helped me improve tremendously. More about my creative writing will be in future posts, as I may post some of it here:)
Well I think that’s it for now, but until next time, thank you for reading!
