Why You Should Keep Writing

Why You Should Keep Writing | education | Scoop.it
This is an opinion piece. When I was little I dreamed of being a lab technician. I thought they were the unsung heroes of the medical profession. To me, they were crucial in helping find cures for all the terrible diseases of the world. As I grew older, I decided to pursue nursing instead. I really wanted to help people on a personal level. My experience as a candy striper helped to solidify my love of nursing. Sadly, my family was poor and I couldn't get enough scholarships together to pursue that dream. That was in spite of my good academic standing. My father's penchant for breaking the law was inevitably a strike against me. In high school, a couple of my teachers suggested I pursue writing. My English teacher liked my poetry and short stories. My Speech teacher loved my original oratories. That's when I truly discovered my passion for writing. By the time I graduated; however, I realized that making money at writing was going to be hard so I fell back on my other love - nursing. Since I could go to nursing school right away, I decided to work as a nurse's aide and save up the money needed for school.
