Although I'm not making a living at it yet, I do now regard myself as a writer. I've completed my first novel, which I hope to self-publish on Amazon soon. And, of course, there is this, my contribution to Hubpages.

The job I actually get to paid to perform is at a factory that produces small plastic mainly pharmaceutical bottles. I'm a maintenance technician with an emphasis on the electrical side of things. It's a decent job. It can be challenging at times, which is good. But I must do something else at some point.

I've worked in this field for 27 years now. One thing about working in factories is that I've been surrounded by some true characters through the years. In fact, my first novel has many characters based on people I knew at the first plant at which I worked.

As I've written in one hub, I've suffered with what I now call a disorder for many years now. I was stricken with life altering shyness sometime in middle school. I know the cause now. And I have emerged from it to some degree. But I'll probably live with it to a certain degree for the rest of my life. But that's fine. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it weren't for that. And I'm happy with who I am as well as who I hope to become.
