You know how literally every writer likes to talk about how they've been "writing for as long as they can remember?” Well instead of making it sound like some divine calling I knew from a young age, I'll just tell you the detours and fuck-ups that happened along the way.
I have a Technical Degree in Graphic Design. (Detour)
I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology even though academia makes my skin crawl.
(Half detour, half fuck-up)
I invested over a thousand dollars in a multi-level marketing company and made negative amounts of money. (Major fuck-up)
I worked in a commission-only B2B sales job and never made a sale. (Minor fuck-up)
I've traveled hours for auditions that didn't land me any roles.
(Lots of construction-imposed detours)
These detours and speed bumps took me here. That said, I know writing's the thing you couldn't stop me from doing if you tried, I’ll probably do it until I’m dead, and I’m damn good at it.
