My name is Josh Daum, and I’m a writer. Unfortunately I can’t get much more specific than that at this point, because– well, actually, I can’t really claim writing as my “job” right now, in the sense of getting paid for it. It’s a bummer.
When I decided that I wanted to write, I was taking a class at Baldwin-Wallace. I was writing fiction, and I had hopes of publishing novels. (Ok, I’ll be real here. I had hopes of publishing best-selling novels. A guy can dream). Since then I’ve tried my hand at academic writing, I’ve toyed with copywriting and technical writing, and I’m now starting a little advertising endeavor with a graphic designer friend of mine.
And that is really what this blog is going to be about. Last May I finished up at Baldwin-Wallace with a degree in English, and now I want to find a way to make a living by writing. At the moment I have a “day job” at the airport, and my writing is very much “on the side.” Step one: Reverse those two positions. Step two: Remove the “day job.”
It can be done, or so I’m told.
So yeah; I’m a writer. Not in the sense that it’s my job and I get paid for it, but in the sense that it’s what I do and how I define myself.
Time to get to work.
