When I Grow Up

All I wanted to be was a writer. Okay, that’s not true.

I’ve wanted to be a firefighter, a police officer, a singer, a lawyer and a writer. Not necessarily in that order, but you get the gist.

I have been writing since I could pick up a crayon and put it to wall (yeah, my mom loved that one). I have memories of writing “movies” – drawing pictures with subtitles and shining a flashlight on them – don’t judge. I was adorable.

I was writing short stories with dialogue in middle school while others where still trying to figure out how to do the daily language skill activities on the chalk board. Basically, I have been writing.

So if I have been writing forever, why do I feel I suck at it? And how do I make myself feel better so I have the confidence to put myself out there more.




Lisa Arrington is a mother to two wonderful who has always had a passion for writing. Lisa attended a local technical college and received an associate degree in Computer Networking which she put right to use. Lisa currently lives in Southern Arizona with her two sons and when not writing she can be found curled up on her favorite chair with Kindle in hand, reviewing books for her blog, chauffeuring the boys around town for basketball games or playing Candy Crush Soda on her phone. She loves the color blue, can't get enough cherry cheesecake ice cream or Junior Mints and will forever be in a power-struggle over the big screen TV with her youngest child.
