No, I actually wanted to become a writer for the longest time. I was writing stories in little notebooks for as long as I can remember, however I was also always taking art classes at a local gallery or in school. In college I was only going to minor in art, although after a couple of studio classes, I liked it so much that I picked it up as a second major.
After a couple years of sitting through critiques for my writing and art, I found that it was much easier to get over the criticism of my art than my writing. I figured that if I was capable of doing art no matter what, I should probably focus more energy on it. After college, I gave up on writing and I’m still actively pursuing my art.
