What made you become a writer? Where did you find the inspiration?
I wanted to become a writer in school for a long time. It wasn't until 5th grade that I decided that, that was what I wanted to be some day. My inspiration was the challenge of creating a whole new world completely created from my Imagination and aweing my readers. So, Now I ask Where did find your inspiration.
My desire to write came from being an avid reader. I have loved to read since I was a child. When I became a teenager I fantasized about my own stories and that's where my inspiration began.
I've always been a storyteller, even before I could read or even put together any story that would make sense. My dad would let me tell him stories until I fell asleep, rather than read to me like a normal parent would. Eventually, I was introduced to the world of reading and became so hooked I decided to study literature in college, just because it's my passion. I've always wanted to be a writer. I guess my dad could be my inspiration because of all those nighttime storytelling sessions. Plus, he bought my my first book that I still carry around today.
I wanted to be a writer when I completed a course in a College Level English Class called Introduction to Rhetoric. I had written a paper on childhood neglect and it just started from there. Writing became my therapy, thus my inspiration came from that class.
I've always written, but decided to become a DJ when I was in my 20's because I love music and, at the time, talked a lot. The broadcasting school I went to was alerted of a copywriting position with a local production house in South Florida. They recommended me because they liked the spots I wrote. I landed the job and started a career as a TV commercial copywriter. I left the industry because I made a lot of money and put it up my nose. I fell back on my accounting knowledge for a good twenty years and have been drug-free since 1987. A year ago I started writing again. In September I quit my job to write full time and have published a poetry book since. Now I write for a living!
Why you have gone a long way from where you started. Definitely. I might have to find your poetry book. and by it. Thanks for sharing.
Isaac, right now it's only on lulu.com. It's called Hearts and Rainbows - A Poetic Look at Life. It'll be on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in about a month or so. I'd be honored by your purchase.

Would you be upset if your child decided they wanted to become a professional gamer?Avg annual income right now is around $12K-$30K, but is growing...I have my reservations for "major league gaming" to even exist.
