When I thought of a future career I always wanted to be a writer. What I would write about didn’t matter, I only knew that I wanted to be writing something all the time and getting paid to do it didn’t seem like a bad idea. I started writing constantly when I was 8 years old, I wrote short stories and diary entries. I discovered how interesting poetry was when I was 14 years old and started writing poems. I was always going to the library and borrowing books about writing. When a discount bookstore opened up I started buying books about writing, but continued to borrow writing books from the library. I’d spend hours writing every night, often until past 1am. I fell asleep while writing and there would be ink stains on the sheets that sank down into the mattress. I had to check my pen to see if any ink was left, sometimes there wasn’t. My family has occasionally asked me to write business letters on their behalf and I have done so, but only because it’s writing and that’s what I do. Now I do late night writing on my laptop. I still fall asleep while writing, but without the ink stains and wasted ink. I enjoy writing poetry, instructional manuals and guides, and journaling or blogging. I’m also writing fiction and fantasy books and think I enjoy it, but don’t feel like I’m getting anywhere with them. On this TFreemanThompson.wordpress.com I will be share my writing progress and process. For a day in my life, thoughts, and remembering old times I blog at tshaywrites.wordpress.com
