They say if you write, you're a writer. So, I'm a writer.
I'm in the very early stages of a screenplay that someday I'd love to see become a [not-so-] little independent movie, but I have a tendency to nurture pipe dreams. I'm also [sometimes] working on a memoir and I have a few other non-fiction ideas I'm [sometimes] working on. And then there's the poetry which I write quite a lot of, although I go in phases.
For all the writing I love to do, I seem to be really awful at conveying the important emotional stuff in an email. I also repeat myself a lot. I believe it's because I feel the need to attack an issue from 27 different angles just to make sure you understand it -- because apparently, that's how complex I believe myself to be.
Like most writers, I do not get paid for it...ever. [Yet.] And that's okay. I write to express myself and because I love writing, but I honestly believe maybe doing this as a career is something I need to do more than just think about.
I'm also a single mom, a lover, a sometimes fighter (but never a bully), a friend, a caretaker (no, not of the dead), a goofball, rebellious, a daredevil, a risk-taker, a lover of life and love, and I'm passionate. I think I'm also really lost.
