Hello again, Jamie. Hope all is well with you. Thank you for all the guidance you have given me in past questions.

On my last question, you mentioned thinking about writing as a career. We also dabbled a bit on synchronicities. In the past and more recently, I've had many tell me that I'd make a good writer; maybe even publish a book. But, since that big fat "D" in my college creative writing class many years ago, I believed that defined the kind of writer I was. Throughout my life, I always get these ideas that I think would make a good book or movie (I joke that my life is like a movie), then I stop myself and think.......IF only I could write. Despite the, what I realized to be, synchronicities, I've always just brushed off any thought about writing.

I'm intrigued by the idea that I'm not the "D" writer I thought I was. Being able to potentially be compensated for doing something (despite others opinions/ grades) enjoyable is a bonus. It acutally feels "right" in my life the more I think and imagine the possibilities. Could you share deeper insight, details, and guidance about this writing venture? The who's, what's, where's, when's, how's, how to's, what kind's, etc. I am grateful for anything and everything you can share. I'm trully excited about this and would like to begin heading down this path.

Thank you

I'm so sorry, I skipped yours and I'm not even sure how it happen. But here we are!

I am so happy to hear that you have realized that you do not have to be defined by a piece of paper that someone wrote a letter on. Now is definitely time to rise above that symbol that was placed upon you!
Also, you know you are on the right path when it feels good. Our feelings are good indications and they should be paid attention to.

Sooo...all that being said. I want to tell you that I am feeling novels for you. Fiction novels. Start doing your research on writing a book, finding an agent, etc etc. I really feel it will be impt for you to do your research about the when and hows etc right away. Don't delay. It's alot of work but I think it will get you excited and motivate you. Then when you have the book written it will be a much easier process to get it published.

I feel that you will have to make sure to block out time to write. None of this whenever I can fit it in, willy nilly stuff. Get serious about it, make time for it and write. I want you to start with a list of ideas and decide which one just fires you up. Really fires you up and go with it.

This will work out for you, but I do see clearly you will have to make the effort. It's not going to fall into your lap!

I wish you the best of luck. YOu can do it!!!
