Someone is connecting with what I share

Would it be nice to get paid for connecting my writing with others? Of course! I’m not going to lie that it would be wonderful to have even a small income from my writing But I refuse to do so by any means than what feels most authentic to me. I could easily do some free-lance article and blog writing. I’ve sold one article in the past, in fact. But I can’t be bothered to write about crap that doesn’t mean anything to me, even if that means bringing in some cash. I’ve been there and done that and I don’t want to kill the joy that writing brings to me for the sake of a few dollars.

Please join me on my journey to share my love of books and reading

I want to start by sharing a little about myself. My name is Ashley and I am 26 years old. Books are a huge part of my life. I even have a book related tattoo. I am currently finishing up my last semester of college and hope to pursue a career in book publishing in the area of marketing! I am hoping to publish children’s and young adult novels mostly.

I love my story, and I love how it has evolved as I have grown, but it is at the point where I want to share it, and I want it to be good enough to share

Right now, I have two aspirations. One is to publish my book, so I’m working on sharing my personal story and working through the steps to sharing my literary story. A second is to go in to finance counseling. I love numbers and budgeting, and I would love to be able to offer these skills to people who can benefit most from them. Helping someone get out of debt or buy a first house would be as great as seeing my name on the cover of a book.
