The Arts Freedom

I could never envision the answer when they asked me…

“What do  you want to be when you grow up?”

Because I always associated that question with work…

After dropping out of high school and working at menial jobs I realized I wanted to be an artist… Regardless of the fact that I processed no artistic talent.

So I became an artist.

Then I wanted to write.

So I became a writer and after some time I stopped worrying about whether there was an audience or not.

In this, the lost year of 2020; I have finished my first novel and have started my second. I am finally pleased with my paintings and have put in my 10,000 hours in both.
