One question I get asked a lot by people, colleagues and friends of friends is what kind of a degree I have in order to be a professional writer. I look at them and state how I actually went to college for graphic design and computer animation. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to finish because I lacked funding. In reality, a degree is not necessary to become a professional writer. Of course this also depends on where you want to take the career.
I’ve learned a great deal about myself as well as how to write in the past four years. I started my journey with Textbroker in January of 2012. Since then, my writing has tightened up significantly and I feel more successful than I once did. Completing 5000 orders for my favorite writing platform was a great milestone, but I am filled with the sense of being able to do much more than what I am doing now.
