A Creative Soul

My mom likes to say that I’m eccentric. I tend to follow the beat of my own drummer. I’ve said it many times I’m not made for corporate America. I write short stories that are fiction. Ideas run through my head all day long for stories. I have so many things I need to do in 2015. #1 I need to save up enough money to move out of folks house, #2 I plan on paying off most of my debt by the end of 2015. I won’t stop writing and yesterday I did write a story based on a picture of a stack of pancakes and bacon. The more I think of how limiting the corporate world is for creative people the harder I’ll work to make my dream a reality. I reached out to writer whose books I discovered via Goodreads.com. Writer Pepper Pace advised that she still works a day job but that the goal is touch people through your writing not to get rich, even though the latter would be awesome.

Even though I have this blog I’m a pretty private person. I’m debating on using a pen name. It’s crazy but there a few writers who use pen names and still let the world know what they look like. I wish as adults that we wouldn’t down others who pursue their dreams in their 30s,40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. Why knock someone for still working toward their dream? Yes it’s scary to take a leap of faith but at the moment I want to see how my writing is received by others online. Wish me luck kiddies.
