I define myself as an “amateur writer.” I am not published, other than through my blog here. I aim to eventually self-publish as much of my own work as possible. Call it principles, call it determination, call it stubborn disregard for how things work, but I really just like doing things myself.
I’m currently 22 years old and struggling to pay my own way through college. I’m enrolled at Ball State University as a creative writing major, and will hopefully be able to at least get through my undergrad. After that, I hope to attend grad school, graduate, and begin looking for a professorial position at whatever college or university will take me. But I’ll probably just end up as a dish washer at some local restaurant, which wouldn't be so bad.
