I have been all these things, but at the same time I have always been a writer.
One of my first birthday presents was a toy typewriter. My mother expected me to play with it for a while and then get bored and abandon it.
Instead, I wore it out.
These days I’m using a computer, which is a lot easier to use than a toy typewriter, believe me. I write short fiction for my own amusement, book reviews for my website, and now articles for my blogs.
Writing is part of me and what I do. As long as I have eyes to see with, fingers to type with and a brain to think with, I’ll always be a writer.
Whatever else I do in this life, writing will be part of it.
