The question is: what did I want to be when I was 10 years old, and what am I now?

At age 10 I wanted to be a writer
and two years later I wrote 11 pages of a book

At age 13 my writing teacher published my composition
in the city newspaper

As a kid I had seven pen pals at one time

In my college years
before personal computers came along
I wrote letters to my friends and family
in the form of a newspaper with columns

As a church secretary
I published a monthly newsletter

I continued to love words
and I read a lot of books

I journaled as an adult occasionally
but never really got into a daily habit

I started writing books in my head
and enrolled in a writing class online

After cancer disrupted my class for a year
I finished the course later

Last year I began to blog daily
and boy, has it been a fun ride!

I have a list of at least 12 books
I want to write

I am now a book reviewer
and soon to be professional proofreader

I have been in clerical work
for all of my adult life to pay the bills

but a “real” writer I am
so my dream is fulfilled daily
even though I’m not published yet

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
