Writing – Fun, Profit or Other?

Writing Hands - copy-space-3399521_1920.pixabay Happy New Year! Welcome to a new year of the 52-Week Blog Challenge.

Ever since I wrote my first story  and “published it” using construction paper and cardboard, I’ve had the dream to one day become a professional writer. Check out this post about my favorite story.

I wrote for fun as a young girl in elementary school writing stories, superhero plays, Easter plays and Christmas plays that family and friends starred in. The superhero plays usually involved X-men.

As I got older, I wrote poems and songs about nature, family and boy bands I loved. I look back fondly about my fictional adventures and smile at my naiveté. Because, life got in the way and demanded my attention so I had to put writing aside for a while.

Now I’m pursuing a career as an author of romance and science fiction in this next phase of my working life. Have I let anyone other than close family read my work? Only one person. Am I published yet? No, but I hope to change that this year. Will I write for profit or enjoyment? It will be a little bit of both and so I feel I’m up for the challenge.
