I am almost 30 and a full-time student, giving way to change and exploring new career options. Thanks to a fun-loving and maybe tid bit crazy English teacher, Alison Lewis from Aurora Central High in CO (1998-99), I have had writing in my life. Despite being decent, before her class I never fully gave writing its due until she gave me a shove. Since then it has been a great hobby that one day may turn into a side career. I won a nationwide short story contest through Writing Magazine for a story called "The Boy and Fox" in 1999. Have started and successfully procrastinated two books, which may be finished on my deathbed (but hopefully sooner) and several other poems. I am an outdoor enthusiast by nature, and find it awfully hard to stay inside writing when I want to be outside running amuck and that has hampered my time for writing. I know a solution would be to write outside, but the multitasking is bad for my liver and causes nasty twitches. If destiny, however, takes out my legs...more writings will quickly follow.
