We all come to a certain point in our lives where we have to make a choice that will alter our life as we know it. The choice can be subconscious, deliberate, spontaneous or well thought out but we all face a time when we are forced to decide. I am at this intersection now.
I am happy and comfortable in my teaching job, working with five-year-old children, inspiring them, comforting them and confronting each day with the wonder of these children, awaiting the next discovery, surprise, or a book that is destined to become their favorite. Teaching is a wonderful career, but lately, a new seed of an idea has sprouted in my mind. It is the writing calling me to the keyboard, to the world of pages. I choose to write. I choose to take action to propel myself forward into the world of author and book.
My choice opens my eyes to author events, book signings, new books, magazines, and the literary circle that welcomes me with open arms. I choose to take this path and will discover where it takes me.
