Come read Didi’s wonderful post – “Having A Way With Words”.
From Didi – “Being creative is not in a degree! Anyone with passion, fire and dedication can self-educate at any age if they want to. We don’t live in a world with the technology to acquire any knowledge we’d like to explore at the tip of our fingers for nothing. If you want something, go out and get it whether your past disagrees or not!
I didn’t start writing novels until about six years ago. And, I didn’t consider myself to be a “writer” until about one year ago when I published Aggravated Momentum. I was never much one for school. In fact I hardly ever even showed up in class as a kid (I was too busy with funner adventures) I cheated my way to awesome grades. To make things even worse, I’ve never stepped foot in a classroom beyond high school. I know, *gasp* right?!?! The only time I did actually apply myself in HS Lit class was with poetry, I loved to write poems even before I knew I had talent. Other than that, I didn’t care much as a kid about learning.
Don’t start shooting me with your judge rays just yet though, because in all fairness I’ve accomplished more than lots of degree holders could ever have the confidence and ability…
