Yup. You heard me right. I am quitting my stable job to become a writer. No, it isn’t ‘sweet’ or ‘cute’. It is a career change, just like millions of people do all the time. But the difference is I’m not making a brick and mortar business, one that people can understand, one where they can grasp onto that sticky table with the gum underneath and wipe off all that tangibility. No. My business is in my mind. And if you’re not privy to my mind, I can understand how you can’t contemplate how it could create something worth selling. And that is exactly why I am going to be successful. Because for the last six years I have sold and sold again to the most difficult customers there are. Teenagers. I have convinced them that studying matters, that paragraph formation is worth learning, and that some dude who died centuries ago is just as important as their cellphone notifications. So, you better believe I can convince people to tune in to my next episode, my next page, my next story. Oh. Wait, I am supposed to be humble. To doubt myself, to show that I am unsure. I am tired of the world demanding people doubt themselves for fear that they will look too confident. How we talk matters. So here I am entering my new world. I’ve officially crossed the threshold, so bring on the antagonists, because I’m the hero; so it’s more than likely that I’m going to win.
