Ask Janet Mason a question

    • I've been writing as long as I can remember. But this question prompted me to think of a certain time in my life in my early twenties. I was never taught to view writing as a career option -- as a way to make a living. I was the first in my family to graduate from college and before I went to college was working in several box factories after I graduated from high school.
      When I went to college, I majored in journalism with a concentration in advertising. I wanted to major in something practical so I could get a job. I took a job in my early twenties working as an editorial assistant for a nonprofit that served middle managers. I had to find ways to make the job interesting. I moved to the city and commuted to the suburbs everyday for this job. I found myself getting sick every year (very sick) for about a week and during this haze I asked myself if I should be writing creatively. I also had a colleague who remarked that my lead on an article was like the introduction to an epic novel. So it's little wonder that in a few years, I began writing seriously -- meaning that I wrote everyday (working that writing muscle).
