Thirty Day Blogging Challenge: Day 4

wpid-blogging-challenge

Guess what guys ? It’s day four of the blogging challenge! Today’s topic will be…my dream job! 

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved stories. I begged my mom to teach me how to read when I only three years old and from that point, I haven’t stopped. When I was little, it was board books. When I got a little older, it was chapter books. Now, I’ve moved on to novels and blog posts.

But, I didn’t just love reading stories, I loved telling them too. When I was a child, I used to enjoy playing pretend with my dolls and stuffed animals. After school, I would frequently disappear into my room, which in my mind was a transport to another land far, far away. Pretty soon, I discovered the ‘power of the pen’ and wrote short stories with a pencil and paper. I illustrated a “cover” and stapled the pages together. Those were my earliest days of writing. 

I moved to the computer eventually (After taking the ever dreaded typing class), and I’ve been typing up stories since I was about eleven years old. I self-published two nonfiction books (Teen Impact and Know Jesus Know Peace) during my younger teenage years and am currently working on a fiction series that I hope to publish. I have also moved onto other mediums of writing-namely blogging and writing song lyrics while still staying true to my first love: Books. 

As you probably figured out, my dream job is to become a successful writer. I’ve had that dream since I was a little girl and it’s persisted into adulthood. I’ve grown in my craft through writing this blog and also through the blogs of others (Shoutout to all my blog friends!). I don’t know my future holds, but I do know that God holds my future in His hands. Thus, as I continue this journey into college and a future career, I’m going to trust God and continue sharing my random thoughts with my awesome, faithful readers and through blogging. 😉

So how about you guys? What is your dream job? Feel free to post your answers in the comment section!

    1. Thanks Immanuel! You should definitely work on those books! And co-authoring would be an awesome possibility in the future!

      Also, I’m sure you could write nonfiction, you have a very cool blog!

  3. I’m going to have to check out your books! It’s really inspiring that you’ve already published (I’m working on my first novel currently). I always loved playing with dolls and making my own soap operas with them when I was little. I didn’t discover writing until middle school, and didn’t get passionate about it until I entered a poetry competition my freshman year of highschool. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks Emily! That’s so cool that you did the same thing when you were little! A poetry contest sounds really fun, and good luck on your book! I can’t wait to read it when it gets published!😊

  4. My dream job was to be a writer as well. Took me ages to work that out though. Other dream jobs were to be an actress/singer/dancer. And a dolphin trainer – of course – hehe.
