I am a writer.
I also work in the mental health field, believe in a God who loves me, and am nearly-obsessed with healthy eating.
And, as I mentioned, I can write. I think It’s my one real gift. I make people laugh, I’ve made people cry. It feels natural when I write, like I could sit at a desk for ten hours a day and be happy.
Some people say that only .1% of authors get published. And then, I feel the despair of impossible odds. I wonder what would become of my life if I gambled it all and crapped out.
All I know is that when I write, I feel alive in a different way than when I’m doing anything else. When I write out and edit a story, and a person smiles with tears in his eyes and says, “That’s it, that’s exactly it!” …There’s no feeling like it. Like if I did that every day, I wouldn’t need food to nourish me at all.
I’m thinking of going back to school. And I’m scared that I’ll try again, and I’ll fail, and all of my dreams will fade away one last time, and I’ll be Winston from 1984, and the bullet will enter my brain as I sit in the joy of complete mediocrity.
My name is Tiffany Keeler. And I hope to continue writing until the day I draw my last breath.
