That is what I currently am right now. Is it because of A. laziness, B. high expectations or C. lack of opportunities? A little of each, I think: 50% A, 20% B and 30% C.
I went through 7 years of tertiary education which includes college and medical school, 4 years of specialty training and 2 more years of sub-specialty training and now what do I have to show for all of that? 20 thousand bucks in the bank, a 2nd hand car that I don’t know how to drive and depreciating or rotting home appliances and furniture. Oh and a ton of books, accumulated since I was 12 when I still dreamed of becoming a writer.
How does one without fortitude, self confidence and creativity become a writer? I can rip off from other people’s work. Done that before, never been caught … hurray!
The thing is I’m not exactly thrilled to be where I am now but I don’t know where to go. So where does that leave me?
