This is a very backwards reaction from what I expected as my mom is often the hardest on me, but she is so proud because she says she always knew that my happiness and talents were in writing and she is happy for me. She said “I always knew one day you’d get paid for writing.” And while anyone in the world can start a blog, it take dedication to keep it up even when it feels like you’re just talking to yourself.
So my friends who are usually very supportive have bandied around the words “Not real work” “But you like to write” “I don’t understand, so you just write?”
I don’t know, do you JUST wipe noses at the preschool? Do you JUST count money all day?
But you know what? I am the lucky one because I will take every single experience, every positive and negative thing and I will turn it into a blog post.
