Inauguration!

A few more days before the end of 2003. It's a new era. 2004! Isn't it amazing? The first presidential election since the new millennium (really, it began in 2001).

Anyway, I decided to start a new blog about my life as a writer. And boy, do I have plenty to say. But first, let me tell you something about myself.

Why do I want to become a writer?

Because, let me tell you, if you can't do what you love then you are not truly living. We spend a lot of time in our lives at "work," and most people hate their jobs. What a waste of time. I believe that we must follow our passions and do what we love to do. Some people say, but what about earning a living? Bringing the bacon home? Yes, it's tough, especially if you have a family to support. However, the fundamental question still is: who do you work for? I hope the answer is: YOU. And trust me, if you follow your dreams and devote your life and energy in doing what you believe in, and what you love, instead of making your employer a rich person/entity, eventually you will find your way and you WILL make a living (a good one, even) at it. Best of all, it won't be work. If you do what you love to do and will do it anyway, it is not work. It is fun. It is life.

You have to dream and follow that dream.
