Thirty years ago there was a young lady who had a dream of becoming a well-known - if not famous - novelist and a world-renowned journalist. She dreamt of nice clothes, houses, and cars, well-dressed children, private schools, vacations, and trips home to visit family.
She had many small dreams. Now, she's 47 years old and even her smallest dreams haven't come true. Well, we can say she was once a nationally-known freelance writer ("known" probably isn't the correct word) who has written for publications across the United States. And she was at least a known Georgia journalist... you can see where this is going, right?
In the middle of those endeavors she's done other things to take care of her responsibilities including serving in the Air Force, substitute teaching, hosting writer's workshops and performed editing and writing duties for individuals, companies and organizations. Currently, she's a blogger, which happened to be a natural evolution from a print to a virtual writer, and she's an It Works! Distributor.
You've figured out we're talking about me, right?
That's the short and open-ended version of me and what I've been doing. Oh, sidebar, I forgot to mention I'm also a JewelScent consultant. (Check out the latest smell good candle with a jewel inside in the sidebar.)
With mostly writing aspirations, you may be wondering why I've chosen a path that clearly has absolutely nothing to do with writing. For me, It Works! is a vehicle on my path that's going to help me to get where I want to be. Make sense?
