What’s your biggest regret? How would your life have been different if you’d made another decision?
I think my biggest regret is not going to college and not taking writing courses. The college I originally had planned to go to was “Oral Roberts College/University.” It was very strange because I wasn’t really religious, but I had this desire to go to this school in Utah. Not even very sure it is still around. Something was pulling me in that direction and I wish that I followed that pull and attended. Would my life be different now? Would I have not lost my religious beliefs as a child if I went there?
I also wish I had followed my dream and taken up creative writing. I did very well in the high school creative writing class, but I was so afraid to let people read what I wrote that I couldn’t go further with it until now. Now I hit that publish button with nary a thought about being scared of its reception.
