I chose exile...I made a mistake
For the past 5 years of my life...those being the years after leaving school...I totally stopped writing. I chose a career in engineering because I was told that it was stable, and I was reeled in further by the potential earnings. I am interested in how things work but my interest isn't easily held. I drift off in my head and create a world, especially when I'm doing everyday tasks on "auto pilot" and it's for this reason that I've decided to turn away from engineering as a career path. I want to write again.
These past couple of years I've been reading still, on and off because I've been at war with cannabis dependance. That's a side story I won't bore you with. But I read Lord of the Rings and then went onto read some more of JRR Tolkein's books, I also finished my adventure with Harry Potter and I read Fight Club. The latter was a truly amazing read and an eye-opener to many things. I had seen the film but I didn't know it was based on a book until I started to look up quotes from Fight Club. Haha. Sometimes I enjoy putting trinkets of randomness into a Facebook status.
I didn't find The Cult mentioned in my copy of Fight Club, but Chuck interested me so much that I got on google and that's how I found it. I am looking to start over. I'm 21 now and want a career in writing. If it's something small, fair enough, but I want to do it. I'm going to need an A Level in English and probably a degree. I'd be put off by the financial contraints that will be upon me during these years of study...but I tell myself..."You're not how much money you have in the bank."
I'm aware of Writers Workshop. Any members of that about?
Looking forward to reading and writing on here,
