My life as a writer started as fun. It started as a hobby and grew into a passion. I freelance, and I enjoy every minute of it. The ups and downs along with the sads and happiness. The best part is that I am doing what I am passionate about — writing. It started as a love in high school. I would listen in my English Literature class as my teacher would discuss the works of William Shakesphere. I thought: "How wonderful it might have been to have lived in those times." I still do and loved the literature and the stories that came from it.

I enjoy several types of writitng. I've been published several times. I even started writing poetry (something I thought that I could never do).

I may not have won a Pultizer Prize as of yet. But the thought and the promise are always in my mind. People have passions that may come and go. My writing has always stayed with me. My future goal would be to write a book. Perhaps when I retire or have more time from work. But for now my writing will continue. In many drifferent forms. Until the day comes where I can write no more. Than I will hope that my work will be in an everlasting form.
