If I Had to Start Writing All Over Again….
WHAT WOULD I WRITE ABOUT
I was reading an article about writing an article! WOW!
As I read this, I reflected back to when I really got an interest in writing. It was when I was in College (one of the only things I got out of College). I was sitting in a Creative Writing Class (think about it, an Engineering student sitting in a Creative Writing Class). I was lost and didn’t know what I wanted to do. I was beginning to realize I was cut out for Engineering!
While sitting there that day, I also did NOT think I was destined to becoming a writer. But I did enjoy writing. I find it a refreshing way to express yourself from deep within.
Now, role forward to the year 2014. If I had to go back and start writing all over again, what would I write about????
Looking back, my motivation to stay in school was the fact they had a Horse back riding program and a Polo Program. I did the bare minimum in school so I could stay for my main focus which was the Horse Program. When I was taking the Creative Writing Course,I was just starting in the riding program and that gave me my material that was exciting and mind blowing to write about!
IF I HAD IT TO DO ALL OVER AGAIN
Knowing now, what I know, I would concentrate more of my writing on HORSES!
I worked at a Residential Child Care Facilityfor emotionally disturbed boys for 5 years. The only reason I went there was because they had a horse program and I wanted to work with the boys thru the touch of the horse.
When I came to Colorado, I bought a 3 year old horse. I had him for 34 years. That horse was my best friend, my confidant and my guide. It was a rough time in my life and he led me thru. This was the experience I wanted to use horses to share with the boys.
I felt I accomplished that during those 5 years.
IF I HAD IT TO DO ALL OVER AGAIN,
THIS IS WHAT I WOULD WRITE ABOUT!
