    I've always wanted to be a writer. After 10 plus years in a field I hate, I finally gave in and applied to a writing program. I got in and I'm loving it. If you think it's something you might want to do, do it. Life is too short to spend precious time unhappy.

    My first novel, New Life, was published online this past weekend. With that in mind, I am still an aspiring author, since I have yet to make a living at my writing. Surprisingly to me, this novel, which I always thought would be something along the fantasy or horror genres...
