Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today was much better than yesterday was, thank goodness!
I'm still not myself, and struggled with headaches and dizziness throughout the day, but it was nothing compared to yesterday. Maybe it was just because I was able to sit for most of the day, but I felt a little more stable today.
I know that I should have researched doctors in the area, but I put that off once again. Part of me is afraid to get a diagnosis because clearly there's something wrong with me. Part of me is pretty sure that I just need to eat healthier and I'll be fine, so there may not be a need to actually go to the doctor. My parents are kind of at the point where they just keep saying how I'm an adult and I can make my own decisions, so they're done trying to push me to do anything. Maybe I'll see how the weekend goes and then I'll think about finding a doctor on Monday.
In the meantime, I worked on my writing a little today. I didn't quite accomplish as much as I would have liked, but sometimes I need to just move some puzzle pieces around, even if I can't get them all into place. Today was one of those days, where I couldn't really make any good decisions on any projects, but I was able to re-read works and jot down notes for myself for future possibilities.
What I really need to work on is illustrating the children's book that I just finished. That would be the most important thing on my writing to-do list, but it's also the part that I dread the most. Even on a bad day, the writing is the easy part for me. The illustrating takes a lot more trial and error, emphasis on the error. I really wish that I could find someone to team up with me, to become a writer and illustrator duo, but unfortunately I can't afford to hire someone and I doubt that anyone would team up with me for just half of the profits... It's not like I'm going to make a lot of money from putting this book, or any other, out in the world; it's more just for the exposure. I'm happy with that, but I don't know if anyone else would be on board with that mentality. So it's up to me to push on individually if I want to get my writing out to the world. I sincerely hope that it will be worth all of the hard work.
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day. Don't hesitate to share your own stories with me or ask me questions about my life. Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
