Question of the Week: Are you also a writer and what genre or did you ever consider writing?
When I was very small, I began telling people I was going to be an "author" when I grew up. Up until high school graduation, I was still planning on majoring in creative writing. When I received a full academic scholarship to a university, I ultimately decided to major in musical theatre because music was near and dear to my heart. I couldn't imagine a life without music and performing onstage in it. I planned to take creative writing courses in school, but they always seemed to conflict with my required theatre classes. To this day, I STILL haven't taken a class, although I really want to! I did attend a writing workshop in Brooklyn, NY in April with the lovely Alex Franzen. I HIGHLY recommend attending one of her workshops to get the juices flowing!
I guess the big question is - Am I writing now? Yes. I'm working on a memoir discussing overcoming sexual assault & ptsd and I'm also getting ready to start my first new adult novel. The memoir just needs to be formatted; the NA book, just, well, started!
