I'm 17 years old and fresh out of high school. I actually graduate in a few days. When I was younger, I used to put together little comic books that told stories of super heroes fighting "bad guys" and saving the world. It was fun but I hadn't put thought into making it my career. As I aged, I realized how much I enjoyed most assignments in school that involved writing. I loved being expressive and telling stories. In 9th grade after writing a 7 page paper when 2 pages were required, I decided to try and make a career out of writing. So now I write for my own enjoyment and have 4 books planned. They are novels that are based on me and my friends. I changed a few names and added a few events to spice it up a bit. I've also expanded my writing into poetry and have some ideas for some poetry collections. At 16 I interned for the Heights-Hillcrest Regional Chamber of Commerce through a program sponsored by my high school. My writing interests and personality reportedly had a few businesses in the program fighting for me a bit. Once I was placed, I actuality had my own office space and wrote articles on members in the chamber. At 16 that was a pretty huge deal for me! It helped to cement my decision of becoming an author and probably working for a media outlet. And $600.00 was pretty cool too. I hope you all enjoy my writings and feedback is always appreciated.
