Does that heading surprise you? Are you wondering, “If she never chose to be a writer, then why does she write?”
Let me explain what I mean by saying that I never chose to be a writer any more than a sea gull chooses to be a sea gull, a morning glory chooses to be a morning glory, a tabby cat chooses to be a tabby cat, a dolphin chooses to be a dolphin.
I do have an option that the sea gull, the morning glory, the tabby cat, and the dolphin don’t have. They cannot go against their natures, but I can choose not to write.
I can’t imagine not writing.
