to Oops, I Gossiped Again I have always wanted to be a writer in some form. As a child I wrote fiction essays that were obviously going to become a novel at some point (spoiler they didn’t). I wrote philosophy papers as a prelaw / political science major (spoiler number 2 I dropped out). Of course I gravitated to blogging and dabbled there a bit, but it still didn’t feel right. I would get bored with the topic and writer’s block became a real thing so then I’d just give up on it.
