The “Write” Stuff


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.
