Ashley Redbird...Writer?

So, if you read before I am struggling with what I want to do with my life. Ideally I'd love to stay at home with Riley, but being a single mom doesn't allow me that luxury. A friend of mine encouraged me to write. I always have so many ideas in my head, but when it comes to writing I am very much ADD with it. I am by n means a writer, I summarize everything I write. I remember when I was in college, every 5 weeks we had to write a 8 page paper, my classes only lasted 5 weeks at a time, so you think by the end of my few years there I'd have writing an 8 page paper down. Nope, I don't think I ever got to a full 8 pages. I have ideas, I just don't know how to express them or how to expand on them to make them longer. So, that is what I thought when Lauren told me to write. But since I have no idea what the heck I want to do, I thought, what the hell? My good author friend, Berinn, told me to just write. She said it took her a year to write her first story. Oi, that's a long time. But if I just keep writing, I will at least get my ideas out and who knows what will come form that?! I still want to make book covers for authors too, so I hope I can do more of those soon as well. Wish me luck!!!
