I have always hated the question, What do you do for a living?
I’m embarrassed to tell people I’m an accountant, because they immediately assume I am good at math and love numbers, and that is a BIG lie. I was a solid C average math student; the girl who wrote poetry about how much I hated my math class in high school. The girl who took Intro to Linguistic Theory in college to satisfy my “math” requirement.
I feel fidgety and uneasy when I talk about my chosen career.
And until this summer, I’ve been telling myself I really don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.
But I do know.
I don’t know how I’m going to get there, but I know what I want to be.
When someone asks me what I do for a living, I want the answer to be this.
I am a writer.
