About Laura Kelly and The Write Avenue
There is nothing I love more than a good story. Ever since I was a little girl, I was always on the hunt for stories. I was an avid reader, but I loved hearing others tell stories about themselves, so I was constantly badgering family and friends to tell me a story. My love of stories and words eventually evolved into writing stories of my own. Writing became my passion.
However, conventional wisdom said that I couldn't earn a living with my writing and that I needed to pursue a more practical career path. Writing could be something to do on the side, outside of work. So, that's what I did. For years, I was an administrative assistant and tried to fit writing in when I wasn't too exhausted or stressed. Administrative work paid my bills, but deep inside was always a sense of restlessness and frustration. There was a voice in my head asking "Is this all there is for me?"
