Writer's Workshop

So I decided to let Mama Kat over at Mama's Losin' It inspire me once again with her Writer's Workshop prompts. This week's prompt (or at least the one I chose):

If you could change career paths now and be anything you wanted to be...what would you be and why?

I want to start off by saying that I absolutely love teaching. I can't remember a time when I wanted to do something other than be a teacher. Sure I may complain about going to work from time to time. But overall, I truly have a passion for teaching.

But, if I had to choose a new career path, I would want to be a writer. I've wanted to be a writer for quite awhile. I always enjoyed English classes in high school and college. And I wrote for my school newspaper in middle school (I know that hardly counts). The problem is, I don't know what I would want to write. Not children's books. Not memoirs (my life's not interesting enough). Possibly a novel. Or historical fiction. Or short stories.

Maybe that's why I enjoy blogging so much. It gives me a creative outlet. Sometimes I go to bed at night and my mind is spinning with ideas but I don't know what to do with them. I know my blog is hardly a novel worthy of publishing. It's just a bunch of rambling drivel about my kids and the goings on at our house.

Maybe someday I'll figure out what I would want to write about and in my spare time (ha!) I'll get started on it!


  1. I think you would do very well as a writer AND that it would compliment your teaching career nicely. Definitely something you should consider when you have more time on your hands!

  2. I think I would like to be a dermatologist...ha!

    You would be a great writer and are already!
