Writing & Satire
I’ve secretly thought I had a shot at being a writer ever since my fifth-grade teacher, Mrs. Ann Leary, told me I’d be famous one day. Unfortunately, the fame thing hasn’t happened...yet.
After years of procrastination and self-doubt, I finally wrote a draft of a middle-grade fantasy novel, and found an agent, who told me that I was funny and should consider writing comedy. I drafted some short pieces and worked up the courage to submit. Guess what? Real publications ran my pieces!
I discovered that I especially love satire, because--to quote noted philosopher Cher Horowitz--it gives me “a sense of control in a world full of chaos.” I’m also working on a film script and a web series script.
Moral of the story: Do your best work and get it out the door.
