Okay, so without going into my complete life story which would without doubt entertain you guys to no end(LOL), here’s how it goes.
I have done three things and had three passions and hobbies since I was little. Playing Football(Soccer) and writing and reading. When I was little, I played football casually, and also read and wrote allot. By about age thirteen, however, the football got more serious and I began playing in travel leagues.
While I was in high school, I got as far as playing in a(believe what you want but it’s true) Semi-Professional league called the Y-League. It was just a talent development league, we didn’t get payed or anything.
After I hit thirteen, I complete stopped writing stories and only read books in school as they required so. I have played football for the past fifteen years, extremely hard for the past seven, and now my body is just getting burnt out to be honest.
My academic intelligence has suffered. I can barely put together sentences when I talk to people, let alone write. Already, *Blushes red with embarrassment* I’ve had to use spell check on almost every paragraph I’ve written so far.
But I want to start writing again like I did when I was younger, out of pure interest and love. I will work my regular job and write for fun. I’ve already joined sites such as fan fiction.net and fiction.net.
Question is, do you think I’m too old to start writing again? I’m twenty five, do you think it’s too dorky? I told my parents this and they just laughed and made fun of me. What should I do? Am I too much of a loser if I choose to stay single, not date women, and live in my own world writing fiction stories?
