I have been writing off and on most of my life in some aspect of living or in my job, but never full time. A lot of that time, I have also been editing and rewriting the work of others. Since I enjoy this a great deal, I decided to venture out in this endeavor full time. There is nothing like necessity to put the fire under someone's behind to really produce in the line of work (play?) they want to become involved in.
And so it is that I have taken the big step off the known territory of my balcony into that area outside my box without a safety net. Hopefully while I am falling down through the stratisphere, I will find the rip cord to my parachute and land squarely on my feet in the land of authorship.
