The writing profession is not an "easy buck." But why do some people still like to be writers and pursue the instability of writing?

It is true that like teaching, it is almost a "thank you," compared to high corporate salary rates, yet its the excitement, freedom, self-fulfillment, and honor are way beyond what money can buy. That is my belief as a writer.

My dream was to be journalist. However, I did not take Journalism because my parents thought I'd rather study a business related course. And so, did I. And so I got married early because I never enjoyed my work.

Writing never left me. It haunted my days as a housekeeper. While taking care of my kids, I took up Journalism in a home-study program. There were no online classes before, so I had to write my essays legibly and piously. And thank God, I passed the international correspondence course. That became my second degree.

From thereon, I started to live a challenging domestic life while writing freelance.
