While growing up, I was an athlete. I played multiple sports. When I wasn’t playing or practicing, I was watching sports. I slept with ESPN on the tv. I wouldn’t miss a second of a game.

I never thought I’d see the day that authors would replace athletes. I never thought I’d see the day that I’d rather read a book than watch sports.

I look up to authors. I want to be like them. I love learning. Writers inspire me. I love writing. I want to inspire and teach others.

When I read, I learn. When I watch, I have nothing to show for my time and often leave empty-handed, stressed, and frustrated.

Trading athletes for authors has changed my life. Also, I’m a free agent if anybody’s looking for a writer. 😁
