In case you're wondering, I have decided what I want to do as a professional. (can you guess?) I want to write. For money. And I am pretty confident that I can do it. I can see myself writing articles for publication in parenting magazines, and I have a couple of ideas that I want to flesh out, possibly as nonfiction books. Of course, such writing will require more discipline, time, experience, and finesse than I currently possess, but I am not worried that all of those things and more will come.
So I suppose that I need to add "take writing courses" to my list of things to do. I'm actually getting excited typing this. It makes it feel real, that it will happen.
